Every Remembrance Day that comes each November makes me realize something. Just how sad I feel for the loss of all soldiers of all the wars.
Below are quotes from Canadian soldiers who have been to war:
"We go on and on about our differences. But, you know, our differences are less important than our similarities. People have a lot in common with one another, whether they see that or not."
"All of us who are convinced that our military needs all the support the government and public will provide are pleased that he will have his chance to do just that."
"However, I think, first of all, that what's happening in Sierra Leone is going to have the great influence on those governments who will be asked to provide forces to the Congo. Second, of course, the Security Council has no professional military advice organized in any way."
"The Halifax area has long played a major role in Canada's military operations, being the port of departure for convoys, naval task forces and army units over the past 100 years or so."
"This is the wonderful thing about espionage, nothing exists any more."
"We were trained to live by our wits, in any circumstance."
