Canada needs flag-waving

I thought we had finally caught up with our American neighbors in recognizing the sacrifice these young men and women made for our country.

To the Editor,

As a veteran of the Korean War, I was proud of my fellow Canadians and the amount of support for our troops during the Afghan war, something we of the forgotten war never received.

I thought we had finally caught up with our American neighbors in recognizing the sacrifice these young men and women made for our country. Every second home was flying our flag and the enthusiasm was contagious. How times have changed and those great patriots have jumped off the bandwagon. Those flags are now few and far between.

Do we Canadians need a war to show our love for our country?
