Today marks a national holiday of remembrance in Greece: October 28th is known as Οχι Day, the day the Greeks greeted Mussolini with a resounding NO to his demands to occupy Greece. EllasDevil already did a good job of presenting us with some background on the history, so I won't continue with it further.
I do, however, want to express my gratitude to the Greeks that fought so bravely to resist the Italian forces, as well as the men and women of the Greek resistance who kept the German army so busy it no doubt helped lead the Allies to victory.
To those Greeks who fought the brave battles, I thank you, I commend you, and I remember you. May you never be forgotten.
