Rembrance/Armistice/Veterans Day 2015

I know this isn't a holiday in Switzerland, and among Switzerland's immediate neighbours 11 November is only a holiday in France. (It's St. Martin's Day in Germany, but the holiday that closest serves this purpose is next week.) That being said, I'd like to extend my best wishes to EFers for whom this is a holiday, in particular to Americans who have served in the US military or other who simply wish to remember the sacrifice made by their countrymen in important wars.

I appreciate that @eddiejc1. Thank you. I have had a few Swiss colleagues come up to me, asking about my red poppy today. No political statements - just thanks to all veterans for their service.
