How much will it cost? How will it be implemented? What are the ramifications?

The conversation stops dead, the men not knowing what to say, talk of schools, teachers and doctor's appointments not the normal discourse in this setting.

'Keep up the good job and know that we watch and laugh and cry with you'

Every now and then it happens.

Like the other day, dancing in my living room, smiling at my husband and laughing with my children, and suddenly, a song comes on that I vaguely recognize.
"Hey," I say to Carl, "Benoît read those words to us when he came back from Afghanistan."
Then I tune into Shawn Hlookoff's Soldier lyrics, and I am no longer dancing.

From the first day, separation from family and friends back home has effects on people.

The place where we board buses to go to the airport is jokingly referred to as The Crying Room -- and the name is earned.

There was one group that was overlooked in the aftermath of the tragic fire at the Manège Militaire and that was the 629 Kiwanis Air Cadet Squadron.
