    My heartfelt condolences to your loss. It's a terrible price to pay for our freedoms.

    I also have distant Canadian cousins near Red Deer, AB so I do have some ties to you all.

    As a well known General said: "War is Hell" !!!
    However, sometimes, not fighting makes it even worse...

    The second rule: "Bring enough gun"

    Sad to hear the news. Canada has always been our ally and it hurts losing one of them as it does losing one of our own. My condolences GunnyBunny.
    God bless our troops!
