PostSubject: Veterans... Great Citizens   Mon Feb 08, 2010 1:01 am

I'm watching the movie Memphis Belle for the umpteenth time. Yesterday, I ran into an old friend, likely in his early 90's who flew in combat for the RCAF during WW2... just a wonderful chap. His plane was shot down and he was a POW until the Russians entered Germany and liberated his camp. He said, "You know Paul, I really think this made our vets better citizens for Canada."

Well, I agreed with him. These vets, old and new, risked and sometimes gave their lives. Although I detest war and conflict, men (and women) who are on the front lines are great citizens.
