Remembrance Day: Who Are You Remembering?

[UNVERIFIED CONTENT] The red poppy is a symbol of remembrance for all the men and women who fought in war. This design is Canadian. A hand is selecting a pin from many.

On Monday, Canadians across the country will take time to remember those who served our country here and abroad.

But among the the thousands of names and the graves in faraway countries are countless stories of men and women who served Canada, stories that sometimes get lost in the shuffle.

For many people, Canada's veterans aren't an abstraction -- they're individuals with their own unique story.

We want you to share these stories with us and your fellow HuffPost readers.
