Mixing Business and Pleasure Part 2

July 30, 2010

While bored and surfing you tube I found a few examples of how Amateur Radio Operators could work in their hobby…  The first few will be the obivious ones….

Now although this one and the first one are “Pro Canadian Forces” and a few more will be as well I am not trying to get you to sign up and I am not a “Hawk” or a “Dove” but I am a radio/technical enthuaist… 

If your hobby is radio and electronics why not get a job where you get to play with the best electronic toys Canada has to offer.

It gives you a choice especially if you get seasick….

Keep your  political views to yourself and look at the radio side of things…

And they thanked me…. (non radio topic)

First of all… Sorry I have not been posting that much this week… But this week has been kind of been a “writers block” week.  At least thats my excuse along with the fact with doctors appts and some other personal stuff I just have been too busy…

Thats the lead in for todays entry….

While I was out yesterday in Ottawa East I ran into two members of the Canadian Forces.  Normally I can go weeks without seeing any members of the military in uniform as there are no facilities near my normal traveling routes…  Yesterday for whatever reason while I was out they were out there and visiable.  As luck would have it I was wearing my ” Support out Troops” baseball cap (see below)

And  in both cases these strangers in uniform (I never met either before yesterday) came up to me and THANKED ME for wearing the hat… They are defending our country  and both of them were young enough and in a trade that could have them deployed to one of the worlds trouble spots in an instant and these fellows THANKED ME!.

I corrected them quickly…saying this was my way of thanking them… and that I for one appreciated what our military and those who were deployed were doing and wished them all the best….

They defend and support us… I wear a hat and they thank me??? 

Yesterday I was very proud of our forces… I just wish my grandkids had been with me to see this chance meeting.  It would of been an excellent demonstation of honour and valor that was shown my these two fine examples of the quality of the Canadian Forces…

The above is not about “Should we be there or not….”

WE ARE THERE… BUT IT A SELECT FEW THAT IS OUT THERE REPRESENTING US AND THEY DO IT DAMN WELL!!! AND THEY DESERVE OUR SUPPORT AND MORE IMPORTANTLY OUR THANKS AND RESPECT!!!
