Mid Week CHRISTMAS is CLOSING in on us…..

First this morning I would like to do a quick explanation to a Reader who served 30 years in RCEME. I would like to see a change in the Criminal Code in order that CNADAIANS who WISH to show there love and respect for a family member on REMEMBRANCE DAY. Should be allowed the freedom of Choice as Canadians to wear the medals earned by a deceased family Member. In Canada we thrive on Democracy and freedom and to have an outdated law such as this is. Restrictive at best to tell some one they may wind up in a cell for Remembrance of a Military family member.  You as I mentioned sir are certainly entitled to your opinion as Canadaians we can disagree about many things and still remain Comrades.  That is it so sorry you took it as a personal attack. It never was , as I do not know you personally.

With Christmas coming once again I emphasise the Soldiers, Sailors, and airmen who will be away. This Link was certainly an Eyeopener to myself.

Since 1947, the Canadian Armed Forces have completed 72 international missions. More than 3,600 soldiers, sailors and Air Force personnel are deployed overseas on operational missions. On any given day, about 8,000 Canadian Armed Forces members Royal Canadian Air Force, Royal Canadian Navy, and Canadian Army (one-third of the Canadian deployable force) are preparing for, engaged in or are returning from an overseas mission.        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Canadian_military_operations

I send thoughts and prayers to the  submariners and their families who are missing for almost 2 weeks.

The Submariner’s Prayer

O Father, hear our prayer to Thee
For your humble servants, beneath the sea
In the depths of oceans, as oft they stray
So far from night, so far from day
We would ask your Guiding Light to glow
To make their journey safe below
Please oft times grant them patient mind
Then ‘ere the darkness won’t them blind
They seek thy protection from the deep,
Please grant them peace when ‘ere they sleep
Of their homes and loved ones far away
We ask you care for them each day
Until they surface once again
To drink the air and feel the rain
We ask your guiding hand to show
A safe progression sure and slow
Dear Lord, please hear our prayer to thee
For your humble servants beneath the sea.

Have a great week folks and make sure you get your cards and parcels out to our Troops.
