I attended the Remembrance Day ceremony in Comox.
After the ceremony while walking to chat with several ex-military members, a lady with her young son stopped me. Her son handed me a Remembrance Day card and said thank you.
I have served in the Canadian Military (Air Force) for over 45 years. During those years I have attended numerous Remembrance Day ceremonies in Canada and Overseas.
However, the moment when the young boy handed me the Remembrance card with Thank You and his name on the back, was a special moment which I will never forget.
We are all proud to serve Canada and to be as members of the Canadian Forces; however it is the people across this fine nation who are worth serving. By this small act it demonstrates that we are passing the right Remembrance Day message.
Thank you to young Liam for the card you presented to me.
