    The Co, RSM, Sgt and Cpl don't even live in Charlottetown? Why is Charlottetown honoring them? Did they not do their homework! As you can see, I am so upset at this story because there are so many "Veterans" out there who are not recognized. To those "Veterans", Thank You. Lest We Forget.

    Just wondering if anyone can give me the definition of "Veteran". I didn't realize it has changed. Am I to understand that anyone who wears a uniform is a veteran? Confused.
