We call it Remembrance Day here, and donÕt consider it a happy occasion, rather a sombre one. In recent years Veterans Affairs Canada has instituted a ÒVeteransÕ WeekÓ leading up to the date.

I have been avoiding this... In 1971 I remember watching two flag drapped coffins being unloaded from a plane in a small town... One of those coffins was a person and friend I grew up with... It was a tough time, I am still here and he is gone. Death and War does not care!

There was really not much I could say to his mother... I could not provide the justifications she wanted. I could only share a comforting Huggg and Tears... All I can say I was there when He came Home... No One can ever know my feelings in that moment.

Welcome Home and Rest in Peace!

"Almighty Father, whose command is over all and whose love never fails, make me aware of Thy presence and obedient to Thy will.  Keep me true to my best self, guarding me against dishonesty in purpose and deed and helping me to live so that I can face my fellow Marines, my loved ones, and Thee without shame or fear.  Protect my family. Give me the will to do the work of a Marine and to accept my share of responsibilities with vigor and enthusiasm.  Grant me the courage to be proficient in my daily performance.  Keep me loyal and faithful to my superiors and to the duties my Country and the Marine Corps have entrusted to me.  Help me to wear my uniform with dignity, and let it remind me daily of the traditions which I must uphold. If I am inclined to doubt, steady my faith; if I am tempted, make me strong to resist; if I should miss the mark, give me courage to try again. Guide me with the light of truth and grant me wisdom by which I may understand the answer to my prayer. -- The Marine's Prayer"
