On this Remembrance Day, we wonder why media in Canada don't make a habit of honouring employees who served in world wars and other conflicts.
They should devote space - in print, online or on air - to honour those who fought and died while on leave from their jobs and those who survived to write about their battles.
And honourable mentions for vets who were hired by the media after serving.
Sun Media newspapers, big on rallying the troops, have Peter Worthington, a Korean War vet, front row centre as an example of employees who served their country.
Former Toronto Sun city editor Ken Robertson, a WW2 vet, is still writing and telling stories up Barrie way.
The late J. Douglas MacFarlane was another WW2 vet who worked for the Toronto Telegram and the Sun.
And the late Bob Vezina, a WW2 vet who had a nose for news - and roses.
Tely/Sun sports legend Ted Reeve was a WW1 vet. Doug Fisher was in WW2.
The list goes on.
We know there is no shortage of veterans who worked for the Toronto Star, Globe and Mail and Tely/Sun.
Perhaps it is a project for media to consider for next Remembrance Day.
