This is what Memorial Day weekend and Memorial Day is all about. It's remembrance of those who paid the ultimate sacrifice with their lives serving and fighting for our great country. It's NOT about barbecues, camping, parties, and store sales. R.I.P. to ALL the Men and Women who paid the ultimate sacrifice with their lives for us to be able to be “Free." #oeht #oehtpictures #memorialdayweekend #rip #memorialday #respect #thankyou #remembranceday #america #usa #usmc #usarmy #usnavy #military #nyc #az #arizona #pow #merica

Happy Memorial Day weekend!
As they are missing targets when it comes to recruitment, the Ministry of Defence has come up with the brilliant and ~totally legit practice of recruiting TEENAGERS! 👍😬⠀ ⠀ Boy, there’s no better age group to recruit! After all, it’s not like teenagehood is an actual existential crisis period for any and all children transitioning to adulthood 🙃 ⠀ ⠀ An army document leaked in 2017 made it VERY clear that the army is deliberately targeting the poorest young people for recruitment. The target recruit was "16-24, primarily C2DE. Mean household income 10K." ⠀ ⠀ It also listed the cities to target for recruitment - with a focus on some of the poorest populations in the UK. This was confirmed by another leak a year later, which suggests a deliberate focus on young people who are easily influenced...⠀ ⠀ Research in London a few years earlier found that armed forces' visits to schools are noticeably more frequent in poorer areas. So, target those with economic instability and feed them the false idea that by joining the armed forces, they’ll be financially stable forever? Classy🤙⠀ ⠀ Other revelations include the army's DE👏LI👏BE👏RATE targeting of people who have failed GCSEs - on GCSE results day‼ ⠀ They are literally targeting the most vulnerable of vulnerables and promising them this life of excitement, belonging, financial stability, and PRIDE, when in reality it can sometimes be far from that. ⠀ ⠀ In practice, it has long been understood that the army targets the poorest people for recruitment, despite the army leadership's repeated denials. Militarism and poverty follow each other round in circles 🔄 the armed forces recruit people from poverty, fuel poverty around the world through warfare and often dump recruits back into poverty when they leave...⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #PeacePledgeUnion #Peacebuilding #PPU #militarism #international #nomore #nomorewar #missiles #peace #love #manchester #weaintdedyet #divest #divestnow #weneedpeace #HYPE #dEDHYPE #demilitariseeducation #peaceandlove #fingergunsonly #divestforjustice #justice #freedom #free #happy #everydaymilitarism #peacepoppies #whitepoppies #poppies #remembranceday

Did you know...this week marks the 150th anniversary of the end of the British Forces occupation in Officers' Square, providing security, medical, firefighting and peace from when Fredericton consisted of few people in 1784. To commemorate this significant event in our history, Fredericton Heritage Trust & Save Officers' Square are hosting a free presentation by Brent Wilson (UNB Gregg Centre) titled "Fredericton's British Garrison & The Military Compound 1784-1869" at the Charlotte Street Arts Centre tomorrow (Sunday) at 2:30pm.

Yesterday we had a very thoughtful arrangement request. She wanted to send poppies to some local vets in honor of National Poppy Day! We were happy to be a part of it.

This picture I took from @ww1metaldetecting as he said it’s the remains of a French soldier who likely died in 1914, and the photo was took by the end of the war, his rifle is rusted and his clothing is moldy and not blue like it should be, and you see no face or anything.. . . . . . . . . . #neverforget #russia #usa #soldiers #photography #worldwar2 #remembranceday #ww1 #america #soldier #nature #military #worldwar #wwii #worldwar1 #worldwarone #war #history #ww2 #memes #dankmemes #militaryhistory #wwi #army #warhistory #lestweforget #guns #europe #germany #travel via @hashtagexpert
The Vendetta Veterans’ Association was formed post World War II by war veterans who served in any Australian warship or establishment bearing the name “HMAS VENDETTA”. There were two ships to serve in the Royal Australian Navy named HMAS VENDETTA. The first was HMS Vendetta (1917-33) then HMAS Vendetta (1933-45), a “V” Class destroyer and part of the Scrap Iron Flotilla. The second was an Australian built Daring Class destroyer HMAS Vendetta (1958-79). . . #anzacday2019 #rslsouthqueensland #sedrsl #anzac #lestweforget #commemorate #anzacdaybrisbane #veteran #ww2 #ww1 #remembranceday #brisbane #australia #army #navy #airforce #hmas #hmasvendetta

Easing into Memorial Day Weekend at Peconic Bay.
The Remembrance Day symbolism of the Poppy started with a poem written by a World War I brigade surgeon who was struck by the sight of Red Poppy Flowers growing on a ravaged battlefield. Lest we never forget the sacrifices of those who have given their lives. May we honor the families of these countless fallen soldiers this Memorial Day. . . ‘In Flanders Fields’ — John McCrae In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie in Flanders Fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from falling hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow in Flanders fields. . . #memorialday #memorialdayweekend #poppies #flandersfields #remembranceday #red #lastmondayinmay #sacrifice

In the last two decades, British public support for military action has declined considerably. With what’s been going on in Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya, the public has realised our involvement has clearly added to instability, injustice and destruction. The myth that war can bring peace and democracy is increasingly rejected ❌⠀ FUCK YEAH - PEACE ONLY - FINGER GUNS ONLY ⠀ ⠀ Because of this, both the regular armed forces and the reserves have been failing for YEARS to meet their own recruitment targets!⠀ ⠀ Former soldiers regularly report that they were punched, kicked or otherwise assaulted during training, despite such practices technically being illegal ⠀ ⠀ We know, we know: “But dED Gals, army training is MEANT to be physically tough, it’s preparing you for the realities of war!” Do the realities of war include being forced to drink water until you vomit and having your throat squeezed until you nearly pass out? 🤔⠀ ⠀ Between 2014 and 2017, recruits made 50 official allegations of abuse and ill-treatment by instructors at the Army Foundation College in Harrogate, where most 16- and 17-year-old army recruits are sent for training. See, if this were to happen in a civilian college or school, it might well lead to it being closed down. But not for the army, no no no… 👆 ⠀ ⠀ The armed forces have become SO desperate that they even had campaigns running that were blaming young people's use of social media for their unwillingness to join the Reserves. ⠀ ⠀ When you run out of ideas to promote something that’s not inherently good or has positive impacts, you come up with shittier and shittier strategies. Facts of life 🤷 .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #PeacePledgeUnion #Peacebuilding #PPU #militarism #international #nomore #nomorewar #missiles #peace #love #manchester #weaintdedyet #divest #divestnow #weneedpeace #HYPE #dEDHYPE #demilitariseeducation #peaceandlove #fingergunsonly #divestforjustice #justice #freedom #free #happy #everydaymilitarism #peacepoppies #whitepoppies #poppies #remembranceday

In honor of Memorial Day and Memorial Day weekend, our team has set up a Missing Man table in remembrance of all the brave men & women who made the ultimate sacrifice. The table is set per POW/MIA standards via militarychapel.org.
In Honour of all the men and women who died fighting for our country. 🇺🇸 I hope everyone has a safe Holiday weekend. 💙 I chose a clear quartz wrapped in copper, Selenite and Sodalite for this crystal pyramid. $65 🇺🇸 Selenite holds lifetimes of information. It clears and protects. ❤️ Sodalite is the the stone that will enhance your intuition if you seek it.

Ending the trip with a little ice cream. Spent the day doing our old family walk and visiting the newly renovated Miramar hotel. It finally reopened and memories came flooding back. My family started coming in the 70’s and I spent every summer on vacation here with the family till I was 15 and then they closed. After waiting years I am So happy it reopened.#beach #miramar #scoopshop #memories #icecream #family #remembranceday

175 years ago, the 33rd (1st Yorkshire West Riding) Regiment of Foot was serving in the Military Compound National Historic Site. As with the other British units in Fredericton, they not only provided a sense of peace & security but also served the community in many ways. In the excerpt under the image, the Unit's doctor succumbed to disease after helping Fredericton treat new immigrants. The square stone building left of centre was the military hospital (on the corner of York/Queen St). . . . #SaveOfficersSquare #LestWeForget #heritage #historical #archaeology #military #british #loyalist #acadian #Wolastoqiyik #Indigenous #RCR #TheRoyalCanadianRegiment @cbcnewbrunswick @discovernewbrunswick @fredtourism @fredmuseum @nationaltrustca @rcrmuseum @aptnnews @cbcindigenous @justinpjtrudeau @parks.canada @globeandmail @bbc #conservation @cac_accr @explorecanada @destinationnb #remembranceday #poppies @royalcanadianlegion @historicacanada @globalheritagefund #stonemason @armeecdnarmy #canadianarmy @britisharmy #britisharmy #travel #tourism @unwto @tripadvisor #boer #mycbcnb #harvestjazzandblues @Yorksregt @robertplantofficial
"VFW Poppy" 12" x 12" acrylic on gallery wrapped canvas NFS National Poppy Day is tomorrow, Friday, May 24 I always try to make a donation for a poppy on Veteran's Day, because my Dad wore one every year. Both my parents were WWII veterans. My father was US Army (started as a Private died a Lt Colonel Retired Reserve) and my mother was an officer in the WAVES - US Navy. The red poppy is a nationally recognized symbol of sacrifice worn by Americans since World War I to honor those who served and died for our country in all wars. It reminds Americans of the sacrifices made by our veterans while protecting our freedoms. Wear a poppy to honor those who have worn the uniform. All poppies bearing the VFW label, are the work of bona fide disabled and in-need veterans. Funds raised benefit the VFW National Home and other veteran programs for the well being of our servicemen and servicewomen of all branches. Funds are also used for their dependents, widows and orphans of deceased veterans. #remembrance #rip #veterans #wwii #wwiivet #throwbackthursday #guadalcanal #poppy #vfw #vfwpoppy #impressionism #impressionist #artbymarychant #painting #artistsoninstagram #artistofinstagram #originalart #originalartwork #redpoppy #poppyred #armisticeday #remembranceday #vfw #usarmy #usnavy #greatestgeneration

North Mackay State High School's marching band performing in Anzac Day Parade 2019. Did you know this was the group's 25th year in succession performing at the Anzac Day Parade in Brisbane. This year again the band marched the route three times - the first time with the army and the second with the air force. The final time, the students marched with the state marshals to lead them in their prestigious lap of honour at the end of the march. . . #anzacday2019 #rslsouthqueensland #sedrsl #anzac #lestweforget #commemorate #anzacdaybrisbane #veteran #ww2 #ww1 #remembranceday #brisbane #australia #army #navy #airforce #marshals #schoolband

Security involves freedom from poverty and the guarantee of housing, health care and education. That’s essentially a human right. If we want to create a sustainable world, we need to first focus on THIS kind of security more than anything ✊⠀ ⠀ The UK government’s own recent assessments have concluded that major security threats include international instability and the possibility of an environmental disaster, because climate change and global poverty are factors that drive violent conflict. ⠀ ⠀ But in 2016, the world spent 12 times as much on armed force as on tackling climate change. What gives? 😤🤔⠀ ⠀ If we know the biggest threats to our security include climate change, then why not focus our efforts on tackling THAT rather than each other? The same industry manufacturing and distributing weapons could be the ones behind new, AWESOME, SUSTAINABLE TECHNOLOGIES TO BENEFIT E👏VER👏Y👏ONE. PERIOD. ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #PeacePledgeUnion #Peacebuilding #PPU #militarism #international #nomore #nomorewar #missiles #peace #love #manchester #weaintdedyet #divest #climatechange #weneedpeace #HYPE #dEDHYPE #demilitariseeducation #peaceandlove #fingergunsonly #divestforjustice #justice #freedom #free #happy #everydaymilitarism #humanrights #whitepoppies #security #remembranceday
