I spent a few minutes around 11:00 today thinking about our Canadian veterans. I’m sure thankful for their work and dedication to keeping us safe.
As a young man, I spent some time in the army cadets, navy league and naval reserves, but I really have no idea of what it’s like to serve in dangerous times. Some of us boomers were lucky enough to miss a war. There were various UN and NATO actions we contributed to as a nation, but so far, no all out war with another nation like there was with the two world wars.
I hope we can keep it that way, and perhaps spending a few minutes of silence with our families once a year on November 11 will help. Fingers crossed!
