Yes and you were schooled on it. Which is why I had put the comment on there just for you. So you could see that even though the term has the word guard in it, you also need to word Honor.

I still dont know where you got the notion that the word guard is synonymous with military.



lol :)

Why are you laughing? He just finished telling you that the word 'Gaurd' isn't synonymous with military and your link here only proves that. No sense bolding the part that is connected to the military, "not synonymous" means not limited to....does not directly equalling. Is a border gaurd military? Is a crossing gaurd military? No, so then it's NOT SYNONYMOUS.

SYNONYMOUS means -> equivalent in meaning; expressing or implying the same idea.

if you want to get all bitchy about it then here ya go

$1:
–adjective
having the character of synonyms or a synonym; equivalent in meaning; expressing or implying the same idea.


makes sense to me. Guard implies to Guard something or to protect it. What do you call it when the military stand around or in front of something there trying to _______ it, protect? guard?. You honestly cant see the connection? :roll:


and I was lol, the fact that we had this convo the other day, so RELAX

In the UK we did this as Cadets and it was called the "Remembrance Vigil". We did it from 2300 hrs up until Reveille the next day at the parade. I saw that the Air Cadets did the same in Burlington this year too.
They usually do it in Ottawa with Navy, Army, Air Command and RCMP vigil guards.


So this is what I found out about this today, and how it started here. The Legion has been giving the Cadets here quite a chunk of change for years. Three years ago a Cadet read about this Vigil and suggested that they could do the same thing to show their appreciation for the donations. The first year they did the 2300 hour start, but the Legion suggested the following year that they relieve the Honour Guard from the service and continue on until 2300 hours of the 11th. The Legion felt that being out there all night, not enough people were seeing them participate.
