Man Overboard

“An hour earlier, he had dressed in his naval uniform, put on his many medals and made his way to the Orléans Cenotaph near his home. He was relatively anonymous among the Remembrance Day crowd gathered outside the local Legion branch, watching an RCMP pipe band lead a parade of veterans and other marchers to the cenotaph, observing the minute of silence and listening as a bugler played The Last Post. When the ceremony was over Norman left quietly, melting away with the rest of the onlookers. For the past several years Norman had been part of the official federal government ceremony commemorating the fallen. But not on this day, and perhaps not ever again.”
