As a secondary teacher that teaches Social Studies 11 and History 12, I just want you to know that I proud of the service and sacrifice you give. Your job of being far from home and family is honourable and humbling for those of us that are with family and friends.  if I can instill in my students even a tiny bit of what you do and endure for the rest of Canadians I can consider my job complete.You are in my thoughts and prayers daily.
