I hope we all pause from our busy day to remember the ones that sacrificed their lives and were wounded mentally and physically in conflicts and peacekeeping missions around the world.
I would like to acknowledge by Brother Dale Eisnor, he is my soldier and I am very proud of him. He has retired from 30+ years in the Army, serving Canada. We salute all of you and “thank you” from the bottom of our hearts for all that you do and sacrificed.

Lest We Forget

I would like to personally thank the men and women that serve in the Canadian Armed Forces.

My thought and prayers go out to the people serving in Afghanistan and in peace keeping missions around the world.

I can not forget the sacrifices of their families that keep things running smoothly at home, so our soldiers can focus on the task at hand.

I would like to send a special hello and thank you to my brother Sergeant Dale M. Eisnor. He has served this great country for over 30 years and has been deployed all over the world, including Afghanistan. Dale, we are all so proud of you.

This time of year we Canadians proudly wear Poppies as a sign of our support for our troops (past and present). The above photo is my rendition of the Poppy made out of Real Red Card Stock #102482, Basic Black Card Stock #121045, Full Heart Extra Large Punch #119883 and the 3/4" Circle Medium Punch. Everything is held together with SNAIL Adhesive #104332.
