I was honoured to be able to host the 5th Annual Veteran’s Appreciation Luncheon yesterday at the ANAF Club. I got to meet several vets and talk with them a bit. One of them was 96-year-old Jack Stringer. He was nice enough to relay to me what Remembrance Day has come to mean to him after all these years. His tours of duty, years of service and the good friends he’d lost along the way. After the luncheon he wanted to talk with me again. He let me know how much he had enjoyed himself and had met up with people he hadn’t seen in years. I said that was wonderful. Then, this man who has spent his life defending our freedoms and country wanted to thank me for my time today, hosting this event. “My time”? Wow, it took me aback. From WWII through Korea and on…and you want to thank me for my time? No Sir…Thank You for Your Time.
