Happy Veterans Day to our American listeners, Happy Remembrance Day to our Commonwealth listeners, Happy Armistice Day to our Continental listeners - and welcome to a special edition of The Mark Steyn Show, in which Mark has retooled some of our regular features especially for the day. There's a brand new installment of The Hundred Years Ago Show marking two important centenaries - the dedication of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington, and the very first "Poppy Day" in Britain and around the Empire. There's also a chin-up song with a sad backstory, a reprise by popular demand of the tale of the youngest man in the Allied invasion force on D-Day, and some thoughts on soldiering and sacrifice under a completely rotten and worthless Pentagon. Click above to listen.
Mark will be back later for Tales for Our Time, and do join him on Friday for a full hour of UK telly on GB News at 7pm GMT - that's 2pm North American Eastern. If you missed Sunday's Song of the Week, it re-airs today at 9pm GMT - that's 4pm Eastern/1pm Pacific. You can listen from anywhere on the planet by clicking on the top-right button here.
