Today I remember my father who was a WW2 Veteran. He enlisted in North Bay with the Algonquin Regiment at the age of 17 and served his country well. He was stationed in Belgian for a time and took part in the invasion at Juno Beach. He was hurt only a few months before the end of the war and returned to Canada after recovery.
He was greatly affected by the war and rarely spoke about it. He passed away in 2007 at the age of 88.
He was a calm positive influence in my life and I miss him greatly!
To all the Veterans today, I salute you! To all those who are enlisted in the Reserves, and in the Canadian Armed Forces you are appreciated for all you do!
