I worked alongside a couple of ex military people during my time in the civil service.
I think I understood their approach to getting their office jobs done. It was a combination of pride and dedication that they brought to work.
With Remembrance Sunday behind us now I know I won’t be alone in taking two minutes out of my day at 11am tomorrow.
That will be my time to think about the professionalism of the military and the sacrifices they make for the rest of society. On the eleventh day of the eleventh month it is the least I can do, to say ‘thank you’.
