I know I shouldn't post non stamping related items on here as most come for the rubber..but I had to share this with you. It makes me very proud.
When one of our troops falls in war they are brought back to Trenton AFB in Ontario. They all travel the same route and along the highway there are many overpasses. A small phenomenon has flourished into something amazing. The over passes are full of everyday people who come out to pay tribute to these fallen heros as they make their final journey home. Then local fire departments, emergency services etc started to come out also...the highway became known as "The Highway of Heros" and now has been Officially named The Highway of Heros. Here is one of the videos showing a little bit of what happens for EVERY soldier that comes home to rest. There are now moves in other countries to follow this, if you read the comments..the British are now trying to create something similar.
Proud of our troops and proud aunt of a brand new recruit. Hopefully Afghanistan will be settled before he is deployed there.
If the link does not work just go to youtube and type in Highway of heros in the search engine (I have never posted a youtube linnk before)
