 The table for fallen comrades:

This rose reminds us of the family and friends of our missing comrades who
keep the faith, while awaiting their return.

The ribbon on the vase represents the ribbons worn on the lapels
of the thousands who demand with unyielding determination a proper
accounting of our comrades who are not among us tonight.

A slice of lemon on the napkin reminds us of their bitter fate.

The salt sprinkled on the plate reminds us of the countless fallen tears of 
families as they wait.

The glass is inverted - they cannot toast with us this night,

The chair is empty-they are not here.

The receiving line is important as it shows the respect between superiors and subordinates by welcoming individuals.  (VACSTC/Wayne Emde)

This day in Canadian Military History...

6 August 1757
French siege guns have been battering the walls of Ft. William Henry (on Lake George) for three days. The French gunners raise a cheer when one of their shots takes down the fort's flag.



6 August 1945

The American B-29 bomber "Enola Gay" drops the first atomic bomb on Hiroshima. With one brilliant flash thousands of lives are ended -- and a new form of warfare is created which will haunt the world for decades.
