    Thanks to all of you who have made and still make our life safer and allow us to have the freedoms we have. You should be honored every day not just on Veterans Day.

    Actually  themightypatriots in my 31 year active/reserve career I never really was directly or indirectly responsible for killing anyone.  That changed when I deployed to Afghanistan as a civilian enabler with a battalion to provide intelligence support.  Nearly every Marine that went outside the wire could have been my son/daughters ages.  It took me about 4 1/2 months to really figure out how the Taliban fought on our AO.  I could then provide accurate information to the companies and the scout sniper platoon that resulted in several IED emplaceers being killed in the act of emplacing IEDs.  The IEDs they emplaced were victim-operated; that is the device can be initiated by anyone stepping on it to include local nationals or animals.  So I haven't lost too much sleep over the insurgents we killed but I often think of the young Marines/Afhgan soldier/civilians we lost or are now single, double or triple amputees.  

    I'm a big "Patsies" fan; attended my first Pats game at Boston College Alumni Stadium.  I really enjoy reading some of the well thought out football posts.

    Go Navy beat Army :)

    Best wishes to all veterans from both my countries this Veterans/Remembrance Day. 

    Here's a picture of the Vimy Memorial in Saskatoon, which I snapped earlier today, with flag at half-mast in honour of those who lost their lives in combat.
