Since Krink has taken over the site updates for TR, that frees me to write about things that are important to me, things I find funny, or issues/events that have particular relevance to Township Rebellion.  In short, I get to post when I want and about what I want, and I'm extremely grateful to Krink for handling all of the rest!


Here in Canada, it is Remembrance Day.

As it is now my home, I have done my best to learn and embrace the cultural differences and observances.   Remembrance Day, much as it sounds, is the day we remember those who gave their lives in military service. In observance of the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in recognition of the end of hostilities of World War I, Remembrance Day is celebrated in many commonwealth countries, and the canadian observance includes wearing a poppy over your heart, special gatherings, assemblies at school, and ceremonies in most towns and cities across the country.  Back in the US, it is Veterans Day, a day in which we honor all of those who have served in the military.


TR has a long tradition and a special place in our hearts for being a second home for service members, and we have been home to scores of active duty, wounded and disabled veterans, retired military personnel and the actively deployed.  It has been our honor to fight alongside of you all, even if only virtually, and know that we all support and appreciate the sacrifices you have all made over the years.  Whether you are a simple private or our very own colonel in residence; toughing it out in Afghanistan -- I mean, really, how hardcore was it that Ormus raided from the floor over there?; enjoying your retirement; still climbing the ranks; at sea, home, or stationed overseas; we are SO proud of you, and thankful for your service.
