Karen and I have met so many incredible military personnel in our travels with our fly rods. Their stories are amazing. We cannot imagine the situations that many of them have encountered. Can you picture yourself flying nuclear warheads during the Cuban Missile Crisis, flying aircraft off of a carrier, going on patrol where a fire fight is expected most days, moving through the jungle in Vietnam not knowing if today is your last, or trying to help a mortally wounded member of your squad? I have meet these heroes. We, as Canadians, owe these heroes our respect and thanks!
Karen and I have attended the National Remembrance Day Service at our National War Memorial in Ottawa several times. It is a very moving ceremony and a reminder to us that we are very fortunate to live where we do!
Karen and I want to thank all of our military personnel, past and present. We appreciate what you do and we thank you!
Do take the time to reflect on November 11th at 11:00 a.m. It is such an important thing to show gratitude for all of the sacrifices that have been made.
