This is my view, from my foxhole.  Everybody has their own war…  Take what you need — leave the rest.  And, most importantly, I reserve the right to change and evolve my opinions over time…  That's what good conversations do — blogs, inherently, are conversations.

    I've posted previous articles with some photos showing just how fucked-up my leg is.  They're far more detailed and graphic than those within this particular post.  However, below, find a few photos that I'd taken today.  I'm in an excessive amount of pain the last couple of weeks — lack of medical care, living on the street, etc. aggrivating shit.

    I've heard and/or seen the definition of what a veteran is more times than I care to fucking recall.  And, quite frankly, there's only really one definition that means shit.  As per the VAC, a veteran is:

    Any former member of the Canadian Armed Forces who successfully underwent basic training and is honourably released.

    Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said that Harjit Sajjan has his "full confidence", amid a growing controversy over the defence minister's exaggerated claim, that he was the "architect" of a major assault on the Taliban in 2006.  Interim Conservative Leader, Rona Ambrose, accused Sajjan of "stolen valour" for taking credit for the actions of another — and, called on Trudeau to fire him, for dishonouring himself and the military.

    Defence Minister, Harjit Sajjan, formally apologized for his "mistake" in describing his role within Operation Medusa during Question Period on Monday.  He said that the statement didn't intend to diminish the great work of the Forces.  Ambrose, said:

    How much more does the prime minister need to hear, before he understands, why our men and women in uniform have lost confidence in the minister?

    While we don't talk about this all that often, there's a real fear within many of us that says if we heal, we'll lose our identities as warfighters.  Fear that healing will cut the ties you have to who you were, who you are, and who you want to be.  Along with it, is a fear that if you move on, it'll somehow mean that you're forgetting and/or leaving your fallen buddies behind — that becoming whole now, will invalidate the sacrifice and suffering that happened.
