    I met a British guy at a St. John's Rod and Gun Club range maintenance work party about 8 months ago. It wasn't obvious to me that he had lost a leg as he was doing as much as anyone although he couldn't climb up the side of the berm to pull out the rocks that might cause a bullet to ricochet. Too bad Harper is cheating our vets out of the funding and support we used to give them. Happy Remembrance Day!

      I was injured in Iraq and lost my right leg below the knee after a 35yr long career in Landmine clearance and other stuff which carried a daily high risk of death or accident. As most military and ex military know when you are in a bad place you don't turn to the politicians and leadership for support, its the folks next to you who are chewing the same mud and just as scared as you are who will support you and you get each other through the fear and the dark times. -- The 1st thing i remember after waking up on morphine after the surgery was a constant stream of "Stumpy" jokes and tales of 50% off at shoe stores from folks all over the world who i knew and whose lives i had touched at some point in time. Sympathy - Stuff it, I would have been more upset if they hadn't said it. The military is expected to do a sometimes impossible job, in lousy circumstances, in places where they are neither wanted or liked and they continue to do so and stand proud. Respect. Whether it is veterans from Afghanistan, Iraq, Balkans, Korea , WW2, WW1 they deserve the respect and support that is due to them - Because they won't ask for it - Pride ,Duty and Honor are not just words to them - It's a way of life
