For the great idea of all that conceived & championed it...

And the great wisdom of Eric Weider & Doctor Sinister in making it a reality...

We Thank You All!

It is a most worthy endeavour & proper tribute to those that have passed in service to their countries!

Ranger Justin Cupples, Royal Irish Regiment


A tribute to Ranger Justin Cupples who served with the Royal Irish Regiment and who formerly served with the United States Navy aboard the USS Theodore Roosevelt.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old.
Age shall not weary them or the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
WE WILL REMEMBER THEM.

An excellent move . . .

Separating proper respect for the fallen from the often heated debates over the wars they fought in.

Thank You to Eric and the staff of ACG.

One more Canadian soldier gave his life in Afghanistan

One Canadian Forces member was killed yesterday, December 18th, 2010, after an improvised explosive device detonated while on operations in the Panjwa'i district of Kandahar Province, at approximately 12:30 p.m. local time.

Killed in action was Corporal Steve Martin, from 3rd Battalion, Royal 22e Regiment, serving with 1st Battalion, Royal 22e Regiment Battle Group.

Our thoughts are with the families and friends of our fallen soldier during this difficult time.

RIP, Steve.
