New generation

A Belgian lad patiently waits by the roadside to salute a contingent of vets following a memorial service. Canadian soldiers on parade return the salute. It was 2007, but the intergenerational exchange of respect is timeless.

A vet tells us the "Eyes Right" command is the biggest compliment troops on parade can pay and is reserved for dignitaries at reviewing stands, so it was a classy gesture.

Vets, we salute you all.
