Remember The Heroes

This time of year is always great for reflection. First for Thanksgiving and tomorrow for Remembrance Day and our living and fallen heroes from all the Wars were Canada served. World War 1, 2, Korean War, Vietnam, various peace keeping missions and Afghanistan. We as Canadians should be grateful for their service and sacrifices for our nation and allies.

  We have a personal story of heroism in our family for World War 1 and 2. During the first great war Cpl. Charles C. Stingel was a dispatch rider and was killed at Vimy Ridge on April 9, 1917 at the age of 28. He was a train engineer before he signed up for duty in Halifax Nova Scotia in 1915. This was my dad Angus Stingel oldest uncles. He my dad had another uncle who fought with the Nova Scotia Scottish Highlanders in World War 1 and survived. Then moved to the Boston area and fought with the United States Navy in World War 2 with a wife and 6 children at the time and his name was George Stingel. He survived both wars with one shoulder wound in the first war and shot in the knuckle by a bullet while on the ship were he served.

  The years are passing rapidly and more World War 2 and Korean War Veterans are dying by the day as they are in the their mid eighties to early nineties. So remember, respect and keep the Veterans and their families in your prayers this Remembrance Day November 11, 2013.

Regards, Ty Stingel
