Lest we forget

Several members of the LEGO fan community have built tributes to the Veterans of their Armed Forces and we would like to take a moment to recognize those veterans today. While today is set aside as the official day that many nations thank the men and women who have served, The Brothers Brick would like to thank all of our readers and their families who have sacrificed to serve their countries. Thank you for your service. Your sacrifice cannot be repaid.

Our own Simon Liu has built a tribute with poppies at two different scales.

Lest We Forget.

Nick Sweetman has built a lovely cascade of poppies in honor of Armistice Day.

We Will Remember Them

Tyler Sky has built a tribute featuring Snoopy and Woodstock. For those who don’t know, Charles Schulz was a veteran and regularly honored Veteran’s Day and Armistice Day in his Peanuts comic strip. Quite a touching tribute.

Lest We Forget

Out of respect for those who have served, please keep political debate out of the comments. Comments trolling or bashing those of differing political persuasions will be deleted. This is meant to be a time of remembrance and respect. Please honor that.

    In Flanders fields the poppies grow,
    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 failing 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.

    ~Lt Col. John McCrae – 1919

    The name of Peanuts’ creator is Charles Schulz, not Charles Shulz.
    Please respect the man enough to spell his name right.

    @Zrath – It was a simple typo. I’m sorry you felt it was disrespectful. It was not meant that way. Unlike you, I am not perfect.
