Who were your heroes growing up?

For myself, THE LONE RANGER, ROY ROGERS and RIN TIN TIN when I was kid.

Veterans are Heroes too.
IN FLANDERS FIELDS POEM
The World’s Most Famous WAR MEMORIAL POEM
By Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae

In Flanders Fields

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place: and in the sky
The larks still bravely singing fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the dead: Short days ago,
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved: and now we lie
In Flanders fields!

Take up our quarrel with the foe
To you, from failing hands, we throw
The torch: be yours to hold it high
If ye break faith with us who die,
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
Composed at the battlefront on May 3, 1915
during the second battle of Ypres, Belgium.

lest we forget. I wear my poppy proudly on my left side lapel from when the two Canadian Armed Forces personal were targeted and killed on home ground. I shall go to the Remembrance Day services later today and after the sevice, I shall take off my poppy and lay it on the monument on Memorial Blvd.

God Bless and protect Veterans past and present. Amen.

My Gran is still one of my heroes. She worked as a waitress in the same place for over 40 years with having missed only six days in all those years. She knew all the costumers, their partners, they would bring her veggies harvested from the gardens, where ever she went people always stopped and spoke with her. She was a people person. When she became ill and died two days before reaching 65, most of 'her costumers' went to her celebration of her life, at her work place, no funeral services she did not want one. Each got up to tell of something she had done. She never forgot their birthdays, kids names and even issues they were going through. She even found jobs, housing she was the secret Santa, she served at the homeless shelter. There were laughter and crying. I learned a lot about who my Gran was. She was a big part of my life. Years later I still miss her.

One of my heroes has been my neighbour who quietly did his job in the armed forces, he had gone to a buddy's service and had come over. After he left I wrote some of what he :

My neighbour came back from the services for Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent, 53, who was killed after being struck in a hit-and-run attack in St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec.

He met a lot of buddies who came out. He said all this has made the men strong and said the common thread was "WE SHALL MAKE THEM PAY, BLOOD FOR BLOOD. You hit one of ours we will make you bleed, and bleed you will." Looks like this is what the THOSE NUTS wanted, now another country is in for the fight. Peace looks even less likely. Sad business, all this. Ed.

Take care and be ever watchful.

Now I look back to our people in uniform who serve us and yes lose their lives as:
Some memories are formed and frozen in your mind. As in: last week:

Two die on Canadian soil

Cpl. Nathan Cirillo, 24, was shot and killed while on honorary guard at the National War Memorial in Ottawa. He was a Hamilton reservist with the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders of Canada regiment and the father of a kindergarten-aged son.

Cirillo's professional dream was to become a full-time member of the military

Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent, 53, was killed after being struck in a hit-and-run attack in St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec. He was was a 28-year veteran of the Canadian Forces.

He had also served as a military firefighter. Two of his former colleagues told CBC News he was a quiet man who loved cycling and largely kept to himself.

To mark their deaths, we invite you to share your condolences for Cpl. Nathan Cirillo's and Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent's families, and the many Canadians who admired them.

The reason why this has made a memory is because it happened on CANADIAN SOIL, NO TREATS OR WARNINGS. And just because they wore uniforms. These acts were done by cowards!!

Thank you Veterans, you are my heroes.
Topic: Whens the last time you thanked a Veteran for his service? by
USMCturtlehead Posted: Feb 18, 2013 10:29:28 AM
I believe every Veteran deserves a thanks for service as well as Police Officers, Firemen or any other Public Servant that provides us safety and protection in all ways.

I also feel his words and thoughts are true. Thank you USMCturtlehead.
