Story and photography by Stephen J. Thorne

For many, the Invictus Games has been a life-changing—for some, life-saving—experience, but the
competition for sick and wounded warriors won’t be around forever, at least not in the form
it is now. But when that change will take place, and what form it will take, are still up in the air.

Researcher finds much to study in Invictus Games 

Story and photography by Stephen J. Thorne

In the first weeks after the previous London and Orlando Invictus Games, many
of those participants said they went into a post-competition slump, especially
the ones who had not been supported in developing post-Invictus goals.

The founder of the Invictus program, Prince Harry, addressed
this issue in his speech at the closing ceremonies, where he
encouraged participants to take on new Invictus challenges.

The Wounded Video Essay

Hubris, hyperbole, hope and hockey 

By Terry Fallis

The National Hockey League returns tonight and millions of Canadians of a
particular persuasion get ready to board the annual nine-month, 82-game
roller coaster. That is the lot for the hometown hockey fan, especially if you
carry the torch for a certain Toronto franchise decked out in blue and white.

I know what you’re thinking. I’m just another deluded,
demented, deranged Leafs fan. But hear me out.

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.
