Dieppe Remembered

Today marks the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Dieppe. It was a day of bravery and destruction. It was also a day of tragedy, as the predominantly Canadian invasion force was routed by the German Army. Regardless of any tactical evaluations of Dieppe, these men of the 2nd Canadian Infantry Division (with a contingent of Brits and a few Americans) fought with exceptional heroism in defence of our freedom.

Pray for the repose of these heroes and thank God for your freedom. Don't let their sacrifice be for naught. Live resolutely the freedom they defended bravely.

  1. As a Major in the CF once said at Remembrance Day Ceremonies last year:
    If you want to thank a vet or pay homage to those who've fallen, vote. Vote. Every ballot is bought for and stained with blood.
