This Vet looks a little worse for wear, but he served. I guess the question becomes did we do right by him. Here he is Saluting "O Canada" as it was being sung by the participants at the ceremony.
If you look at nothing else from this post please look at this. CANADA is there and we are doing our part. I do know what Fox News and the Republican Party of the USA say ,but Canada is fighting and dying.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B0jhJA1Hjxk&feature=related
our National Anthem
During the President Bush Era it was stated many times Canada was never there in times of WAR. However we sure were and always before his Country. We morn the loss of so many over the years as a Nation. Also all those of every nation that served, and the loss of the innocent of every Nation, that including our enemies of that time..
and finally my Father and his wonderful and lovely new wife of one year, in my home on Remembrance Day. My Father suffered life threatening injuries in Israel in Peace keeping. Now in two weeks my son goes to Afghanistan to continue in the fight for freedom of others. I always have the Flag of our Nation on show in my home, because thousands of our fellow Canadians died for me to have the right to do so. I was lucky in so many ways I served our Nation for 25 years (Navy) and never suffered like so many have.
