yup... never allowed to touch the ground yadda yadda...

I still remember how to fold a flag from my
grammar school patrol officer honor guard daze. crazy

The Aussies are INSANE over "Remembrance Day"
..and honoring ANZAC Day etc. Everything from
the exact moment The Sun Rises marking the first
charge up the beach in Galipoli, Turkey took place
to the solumn sunset ceremonies. It marked the
point at which they'd lost so many of their young
male population that their population has yet to fully
recover from it.

Yar.. they hold honoring their dead very seriously.
The BoxingDay Tsunami will always be circled in red
on their calendar... as is the Victoria Bush Fires.

Lest We Forget
