The Band Played Waltzing Matilda – The Pogues

For my ANZAC friends and their families. It is already Remembrance Day over there – and too often, Americans forget that Veteran’s Day was born of Armistice Day – a worldwide acknowledgement of a worldwide tragedy – an entire generation of men fought and died in muddy fields in Europe and Africa – not just Americans, and we didn’t hold a large percentage of the sacrifices made.

2% of the world’s population died between 1914-1918, and another 2.2% were wounded.
