Grandpa's WWII ID tag.

I just reread Grandpa Cliff's memoirs from his 100th birthday. On Remembrance Day, this passage stood out to me:

"I rejoice every time I think how lucky my family members are to have been born in Canada. For young people who will study hard, work hard, and respect the law, there always seems to be a chance for a brilliant future. Whereas other countries have claimed to be the best in the world, it is not difficult to realize that we live in the best country in the world." Cliff Milne, 2013
