Standing up for veterans

THE HILL TIMES-March 31, 2008

Re: “Homecoming: a new direction to welcome our soldiers back into Canadian society,” (The Hill Times, March 10, by Sean Bruyea). I merely wish to congratulate The Hill Times and your editor for the kind of effort your newsweekly is making to bring the many issues of importance to veterans; particularly, to those disabled veterans who have been subjected to unfair financial disadvantage following their discharge from service. I am not a veteran, but merely a senior citizen living in a military community. I will continue to respect our servicemen and women for their sacrifice, including the honour of viewing the fallen as they pass under the local bridges on the Highway of Heroes, Highway 401.
