What is the sound of a repatriation??? by
it the sound of the chatter on TV
announcing the name of the fallen
serving our country? Perhaps the
sound from the roar of the large
military jet landing in Trenton? Is
it the sound of the doors opening on
the air craft or the sound of the
boots of the soldiers carrying the
coffin? Is it the sound of the
pipers playing a song of sorrow, or
the sound of the commanding officer
calling his orders. Was it the sound
of the Hearse doors opening or the
sound of the people and family near
by. Repatriation may be the sound of
the cars moving to the Highway of
Heroes but then again it may be the
sound of the people standing on the
bridges. Is it the sound of the
traffic going by in anticipation of
the procession or the sound of the
occasional horn honking as drivers
see you on the bridge. Maybe it's
the sound of the flags flapping in
the wind that people are holding.
Then in the distance the procession
is in sight and the people on the
bridge are mumbling "here it comes".
Is the sound of repatriation the
police sirens that fills the air as
the procession reaches your bridge?
The sound of sirens vibrate in your
chest then in a beat of your heart
you finally hear the sound of a
repatriation. It is the sound of a
silent "Thank You" from you and all
the people around you to the soldier
that gave his life for his country;
your country. This is the sound of a
repatriation; our freedom.

A Veteran - whether active duty,
retired or reserve - is someone who
at one point in his life, wrote a
blank check made payable to 'The
Country of Canada', for an amount

FOUNDATION OF CANADA Is an organization
to promote support for our men and women who
serve our country.
Our Canadian military has made many
sacrifices in the name of peace, not only
for Canada but for many other countries
around the world.
Wearing Red on Fridays is a symbolic gesture
to show fellow Canadians and our troops that
we care and honour those who fought for our freedom,
our peace, our resolve.
Our goal is to show non-partisan support for
troops. We do not support any particular policy,
political position, agenda or the nature of military missions.
This support is for all Canadian Troops regardless
of their activity if its here or abroad.
we need to show support for our men and women
that place themselves in harms way for all
Canadians. They are our National Treasure.
United we stand for peace in
Canada no matter of opinion, creed,
religion, colour or race. Show you care by
becoming a part of this sweeping support.
Wear RED on Fridays to show you care.
