The one with the old man sitting alone and crying made me ******* tear up. It's always hit me hard seeing old veterans at memorials because I can't even imagine what it must feel like to be them.

I'm in Cadets (Basically just ceremonial military stuff, leadership, survival, and other life skills wrapped up into one military funded program for ages 12-19) and I was at a Remembrance day ceremony. I'm the deputy commander of my squadron (Air element, the whole of our entire core is the squadron, and I was the deputy commander of every single person who was in it) and the commander wasn't there because he had to be at a different celebration, so I was in charge of everybody.

I was standing at the front of my squadron waiting to fall-in with the ceremony, there were other squardons, army platoons, and old veteran squads that were there to remember their old friends. One man in particular was standing, waiting to fall-in like the rest of us, when his old age kind of kicked in and he wasn't able to march on. So his friends/people who were near him in the squad had to help carry him to the side of the parade square so he could sit in a chair due to his inability to stand.

He sat there with his head sunk and he looked so defeated.. I teared up then as well, because I know he must feel horrible not being able to stand for his old friends that he had lost.

I just felt like sharing a feel, old vets always get to me and I wanted to share.
