Celebrating and Remembering All Veterans

Celebrating and Remembering All Veterans

Today is Veteran's Day in the USA and Armistice Day or Remembrance Day in many other places around the world. The Wargames Atlantic team joins in remembering the brave men and women who have served and in some cases given everything to protect our freedoms. 

Today also marks the 102nd anniversary of the official end of hostilities on the Western Front in the Great War, World War One.

We have a few vets at our LGS, we do not all play the same system, and tease each other enough to make others think we do not get along at all! But we usually all find ourselves there around the same time for our non group, group therapy.

Thanks for honoring veterans of all wars all over the world! The veteran community appreciates it. An extra thank you because I know many veterans who have taken up miniature gaming, and it has likely saved many lives. Allowing them to belong to a community that I feel is, by and large, non judgemental and giving them a new pursuit to focus on. One friend of mine, has stated in the dark humor way that we veterans do, that miniature gaming stops him from becoming a statistic because he can’t leave anything unfinished, and a wargamer never runs out of minis to paint.
I’m sure his wife hates me for it, but I try to get him into as many games as possible so he’ll always have a pile of shame.

So keep making minis! You never know how they impact a person’s wellbeing.

Thank you for this message. I am a veteran. It upsets me that veteran suicide is so high in America. I remember all the guys whom i served with who were either KIA, committed suicide or died from accidents after service. It really sucks.
One of the soldiers i served with recently had an interstate overpass named after him. He was killed in Iraq. I am happy his memory is being preserved yet hate that another landmark is being named after another service member.
I am grateful for Veteran’s Day.

Amazing message, I hope those who’ve served and those who serve still today, know they will be remembered
