November 5 to 11 is Veterans' Week - a time to think about those who have lost their lives serving our country. For me it is important to take time to remember as my father was a veteran and many family members lost their lives when they served in WWI and II. It is also a time to think about what is going on in the world today and reflect on the tasks that our soldiers are currently engaged in in Afghanistan and other places around the world. It is also time for us to think about our relations with other countries and how important it is to protect Canada. We should be thankful for our great country and the quality of life that we all have here.
There are many resources on the internet that you can go to learn more about Canada's Military and their role in past wars, current missions and the protection of us as citizens of Canada. I have provided a few links to some sites.
Enjoy the musical rendition of in Flanders Fields and make sure you visit the site to see more resources. (Picture of the plane my Dad flew in WWII - Lancaster Bomber)
