Lest We Forget

Victory Square, Vancouver, B.C.

November 11th was always my father in law’s favourite day.  He participated in the Remembrance Day processional march at Victory Square in Vancouver with pride.  He signed up with the Air Force in 1951 as soon as he was of age.  Although he served for a relatively short period of time, his favourite stories were those times of service in North America, Europe and North Africa. He felt like that his service was of value and that it defined him.  He gravitated to the Billy Bishop Legion because this contribution was validated on a regular basis and his stories were appreciated.

Many divergent opinions are debated about how to create peace in the world.  What is not up for debate is the fact that the people stepping up to serve in the military in the past and in the present, do so out of a desire to do their part to defend the ideals of their country, neighbours, and family.  They are pulled away from families and frequently put in harm’s way.  They deserve our respect and gratitude.
