I do not have to worry about a subject for today’s BLOG. My old pal, brother  apprentice, cook and mentor

George Girling sent me this most interesting article from WW2 about a  soldier   Leo Major of the

Regiment de la Chaudiere    

Major would go on to become the only Canadian ever to receive a Distinguished Conduct Medal in two separate wars (the second earned in Korea). Leo Major a True Canadian HERO:

This WWII soldier liberated a whole town by himself, but most Canadians still don’t know his name

Thanks George for such an interesting article.

\the second article was also sent to me by a brother Apprentice, Trucker and amigo of many Years. Bob Garsnell  aka   “NEWF.”

I always enjoy e mails from my brother apprentices and thanks again to NEWF.

To all my fellow Veterans who served  in 4 CMBG here s a story from the UK Sandbag Times, with the story of the infamous bouncing Bombs, of Barnes Wallace . Used to take out the Dams along the Ruhr Valley including the Mohne See.  http://www.sandbagtimes.co.uk/how-barnes-wallis-created-the-bouncing-bomb-despite-being-told-it-was-impossible/

That’s it for today, please support your troops and your Veterans as well as Military Families.
