The U.S. honors its veterans every year on November 11th. Canada and the other nations of the Commonwealth observe a different but similar holiday: Remembrance Day. “The intent behind Remembrance Day is not to glorify war. It's to reflect upon those who paid the ultimate sacrifice,” Major Rick Cameron, the Deputy Military Advisor at Canada’s Mission to the UN, told InsideEdition.com. “We need to remember what happened in the past, so we don't revert to those ways in the future,” he said.
