  1. Can future National Day of Remembrance “for those who fell in the World Wars 1914-18 and 1939-45” be expanded to include the veterans (all those who enlisted for various reasons) of Antiguans & Barbudans-and their descendants? Their appropriate recognition with the laying of a wreath should be included in the event. Let them always be in our collective consciousness!
