New exhibit spans five conflicts

by Stephen J. Thorne

Gallery 4: From the Cold War to the Present, which opened
on Sept. 21 at the Canadian War Museum, spans five conflicts, reflecting Canada’s shifting priorities from its role as a traditional UN peacekeeper and dutiful NATO guardsman to peacemaker and war-fighter in the Persian Gulf, Somalia and Afghanistan, and referee, of some futility, to the
horrors of ethnic cleansing in the Balkans and Rwanda.

War on two wheels

by Sharon Adams

Motorcycles were indispensable in both world wars. In the First World War, only a handful of motorcycles went across when the Canadians embarked for Europe, but by war’s end, thousands had been put to good use. In the Second World War, the speed, adaptability and sheer power of the motorcycle was invaluable; the Allies produced more than 700,000 of them.

[Wreaths Across America eNewsletter #152] Listening During A Week of Controversy and Pain

From the Wreaths Across America organization.

Listening During A Week of Controversy and Pain

For those of us who feel so strongly about supporting our military families, this has been a difficult week full of controversy and pain.
 
I read the news about a ninety-seven-year-old WWII veteran who explained why he chooses to take a knee in protest; and I have heard from many of our Gold Star families who know deeply the meaning of the our Anthem, as they watch the flag-drapped caskets of their loved ones return home.
 
Mostly – we want to listen. One of the best gifts received for being a part of the Wreaths Across America experience, has been learning life lessons from the people who put it all on the line, to protect our freedoms.
 
So we listen, and we learn from one another. There is an important conversation taking place in our Nation right now, and not the least of which, is a conversation about the values and appreciation of what it means to be an American.
 
So I encourage you to listen to your neighbors. And focus on what we have in common, and where we are in agreement.
 
We are many. We are one. We are Americans. I think that is one thing we can all agree upon. And we would like to hear what you think.
 
God Bless This United States of America.
