Honouring Our Troops

"Having proudly served my country as a member of the Canadian Forces, it's reassuring to see the degree of support for our military that we witness at major events such as those associated with Remembrance Day. However, I've always found the gestures of respect, support and compassion demonstrated in everyday acts by fellow Canadians to be the most touching. I suppose in a way, this is due to the unconditional and sincere nature of these kind gestures, but also because we see them all year around.

Canada may not be a country known for being outwardly patriotic, but everyday stories such as those posted below remind us that Canadians are nonetheless very much aware of the importance of defending our rights and freedoms, and thankful to those who have put their lives on the line to do so. Lest we forget..."

- Gregory C. P. Matte, Executive Director, Helmets to Hardhats ®
