Across the U.S., Canada, and the world, rowers saluted veterans with photos, articles, and remembrances on Wednesday.

Our friends at Hear The Boat Sing put together three separate pieces on the interconnected history of rowing and the Great War, focusing on Eton College ("Etona Non Immemor," and "Most Conspicuous Bravery") and Ernest Julian Dublin University Boat Club who died at Gallipoli, and Eton College posted the below as a poignant homage to those who fell in the "war to end all wars."



Here are just a few of the many posts honoring veterans everywhere, from the rowing world.






















As the son of a U.S. Navy veteran, with an uncle who served in the Marine Corps in World World II, and a great uncle who served in the USMC in World War I, it was heart-warming to see the reflection and appreciation this week, all across the rowing community.
