    'Twenty-five other members and five officers from across Canada will also...'

    Five more officers, but also twenty-five other members ? Members ? Twenty-five non-officers ? Members of what then ?

    I'd take the total getting this honour
    as thirty others; however, this ridiculous issue didn't even enter my mind until I got down to the two comments.
    First thing that came to my mind was how wonderful and I wanted to congratulate them.

    Bradley why does it say 25 members and 5 officers ? Were the other 25 members not officers ? Because it specifically says in the very same sentence there were also 5 officers honoured. You're with me then, dumb too. It's ambiguous. The syntax is flawed in this article. That's my point. You missed it. That would make you even dumber wouldn't it ? Oh well...

    I say those other members were civilian members thats why they say 5 officers,interesting theres so many more civilians being honored then actual officers.
