Being in the service

Transcript
I grew up. I met a lot of people and I have pride in my country that might not have, I mean I was always proud of Canada, but I think being in the service was a little bit more personal. I think that's probably what it was. I felt I was part of it, but I enjoyed the service if I had, if I was single and sixty years younger, I would, and they needed me I would go again. I'm proud to be a Vet and I'm proud to be a Canadian.
