November 11th this year (2014) marks the 100th anniversary of the start of WWI and the 70th anniversary of D-Day which turned the tides of WWII. Canadians have lost over 100,000 lives with hundreds of thousands more wounded throughout its military history. Canadians have fought in WWI, WWII, the Spanish Civil War, Korean War, Gulf War I, the Yugoslav Wars, Afghanistan, Libya, and are now part of the coalition taking on ISIS in Iraq. We have also taken on numerous peacekeeping and humanitarian missions around the world. This thread is for those who are no longer with us, who were wounded in combat, and who continue to serve our great nation. I have friends on the ground and in the air over Iraq right now, and I'll be thinking of them and all that came before them while on parade tomorrow.
I have a cousin and a friend both in the military, both have done numerous tours in the middle east. Some of the shit I see working at the hospital rattles me, so I can't even imagine myself lasting long in a war zone.
Here's my friend Lindsay talking about PTSD last year:
My grandfather trained as a Canadian Navy seal in WW2 and kept it as a secret until before his death on Dec11.05.. He was one of the best men I have ever known and I'm thankful for everything he did and everyone else to help us live the life we have today.
I took my family and my International Student to both the Remembrance Day Ceremony and then wreath laying today here in town. It is important that we teach the next generation to never forget those few that go so much to so many.
The best way we can honour our fallen soldiers is to support the ones that survived. Our country needs to treat vets better than it does. More vets die from suicide than they do from battle in the modern military, and thats just fucked.
Had a great Remembrance Day. My grandfather was honoured for his service in WWII by being asked to place the wreath on the Cenotaph at Richmond City Hall on behalf of all veterans. It was quite the honour and awesome to see.
even as a member of the forces... i don't feel he's "taking" anything away.
he's just some guy that wants to be something he isnt a part of. any vet should take it as flattery.
no different than a kid wanting to dress up as a soldier.
he's just a doofus... too much ego on what is "rightfully earned".
rightfully earned isnt an appearance. it's just knowing what you've done. who cares if there's an imitator. flattery at worst.
ruin a man's life, just because he dressed up as something he wanted to be. everyone has a dream lol. he just wanted to be a soldier, so he did. who the fuck cares.
let the kid be a kid. i'm sure you guys have better business than to dictate what this grown man can do or can't do.
yeah, it's pathetic. and that's all it is. fuck him, who the FUCK cares.
"stealing our valour" my ass. knowing you did the real thing is good enough. leave the retard alone. he knows he's a fake. that's all that matters.

Thing I don't like and why they should make an example of this guy is that he dressed in uniform and walks right up to Cenotaph where one of our soldiers was killed just a few weeks before. From that event, many more people attended and it just labels it as an easy way to invite possible wackos from walking right into a group and going crazy. I'm not a guy that is a fear monger, but it is a plausible situation that should be publicly corrected, and this schmuck is gonna be the fall guy.
he's probably leading a double life where his wife and her family think he's a soldier. When approached for the interview he had to play the part to keep selling the lie. That woman next to him looked very proud of him.
