April 9, 1917

Just a quick post today but one that I feel is very important. April 9, 2012 marks the 95th Anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge. It was on this day in 1917 that, for the first time, the four Canadian divisions fought alongside one another to capture this important objective. This was Canada's opportunity to show it's worth, to show what its men and women could do. After a very long four days, the ridge was in Canadian hands. The fighting strength and spirit of the Canadians was clear, they were among the best. It is to these men and women that I dedicate this post.
