Well Oppo, it's almost Rememberance Day, and I must say, rememberance day has taken on a special meaning for me, because a few of my friends went and fought in Afghanistan. One of them suffered an extremely serious injury, as a claymore mine he was training with blew up. He lost his liver, pancreas, spleen, kidney, and appendix.
But thanks to the care of excellent medical staff, he lived.
Other's were not so lucky.
To those that served: Thanks, your sacrifices will never be forgotten. Here is a song called
"Highway of Heroes" (which is the part of the 401, where Canadians are driven from Air force Base Trenton, to the Coroner's Office in Toronto, before they are sent to which ever part of the country they came from).
"They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old: Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning We will remember them."
We will never forget the 158 brave Canadians whom paid the ultimate price in Afghanistan.
