Hey It's November 11th. Rememberance Day for you Americans- today we remember the servicemen and women who gave their lives for our Country, particualary in the 1st and 2nd World War. I've always been fascinated by WW2, and a couple years ago I had the privilage of taking a camping trip out to Normandy with my brother Tom. So this guy you see in the picture above is a hero. His name is Mr. Paul and he's from Kingston Ontario. I met him at the Juno Beach centre, in Normandy. It was not his first trip; Mr. Paul stormed Juno beach with other brave Canadians on June 6, 1944. A true romantic, Mr. Paul was the first soldier to marry a french girl and brought her back to Canada. Here's to Mr. Paul and the thousands of other vets out there. Thank you. Posted by Hello
