Thanks, Dawn. Thanks more to those that served and continue to serve. Thanks to those that gave their lives for us back home.
Lest we forget.

No prob! My dad was in the Royal Canadian Navy from 1939 to 1954, so I probably feel more of a connection than some my age.

Went to a concert tonight in celebration of the 100th year of the Canadian Navy tonight. There's a blog post in that, I can tell you for nothing.

RNZAF 1959 - 1984. Air Force brat, at your service!

Aha! You've told me this before, although not the years your dad served. You know, us armed forces brats have a way of finding each other, don't we. I can't tell you the number of times I've met someone in RL or online, felt in tune with them, only to discover... military parent(s). Although technically I'm not a navy brat, as Dad retired from active service before I was born, it still affects your upbringing.

It is. It's the upbringing.
And I know how to polish a mean shoe!

Hmm, my negligent father was Air Force...did time in Alert. My oldest sister was born in Whitehorse, and I was almost born in Manitoba. If he had stuck around who knows where we'd be? ;)

Erin, this world needs more Lerts... Soz. The non-sticking-around fathers are everywhere. Interesting, though, that you still have the military in your background. I wonder if Debi does, too?

Also, had he stuck around, you'd be as anal an i-dotter and t-crosser as Kim and I. And you'd have very, very shiny SHOES.

So glad I saw this. I also posted a bit about ANZAC, lovely to see a Canadian post about it. We really must not forget the sacrifices and all we now have because of it.
Actually I just hate war, but still I want to remember it, I am a paradox.
