A lone Belgian boy is waiting to salute the Canadian troops who pass by after attending a memorial service. The "Eyes Right" command is the biggest compliment troops on parade can pay and is reserved for dignitaries in reviewing stands.

I too think of my Father today. He served in the Army in the South Pacific during WWII. He returned home safe and lived until age 83.

Parts of it were published as part of an article written about him and his passing.
