I put my newsletter together today and dedicated
it to our troops, both past and present.

I included a collection of links for Remembrance
Day and Veterans Day.

I thought you'd like them too.

links are dedicated to our troops

Soldiers surprising: their sisters:


The Anzacs support: Our Troops

On November 11, 1999 Terry Kelly was in a drug store in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. At
10:55 AM, an announcement came over the stores PA asking customers who would still
be on the premises at 11:00 AM, to give two minutes of silence, in respect to the veterans
who have sacrificed so much for us .

Terry was impressed with the store's leadership role in adopting the Legion's two minutes
of silence initiative . He felt that the store's contribution of educating the public to the
importance of remembering, was commendable.

When eleven o'clock arrived on that day, an announcement was again made asking for
the two minutes of silence to commence. All customers, with the exception of a man
who was accompanied by his young child, showed their respect .

Terry's anger towards the father for trying to engage the store's clerk in conversation and
for setting a bad example for his child ;was channeled into a beautiful piece of work
called A Pittance of Time. Terry later recorded A Pittance of Time, and included it on
his full-length music CD, The Power of the Dream.

Thank You to the Royal Canadian Legion Todmorden Branch #10 and Woodbine Height
Branch #2 for their participation in the Video.
