I was watching a show about the contributions and sacrifices made by our Canadian soldiers, domestic and abroad, from the past to present day. You should all feel a great deal of honour in what you're doing. It may not seem like it in the day to day. but you make an enormous difference and continually set a higher standard for the rest of the world to follow.  And you make me feel very proud to be Canadian. You guys rock!
