Featured Photo November 5, 2021

Flying strong and proud.

Shot on October 25th, 2021, near Juno Beach, this week’s Favourite Photo features five flags flying together.

The flags on each end are from France: the French flag (outside left) and Normandy’s (outside right).

Flying proudly between them are the British, second left, United States, middle and Canadian flag, second right, the three countries that participated in D-Day, also known as Operation Overload, a turning point for the Allies during the Second World War.

Cpl Laura Landry shot the photo during an Operation Reassurance training flight.

We will remember.

Cyndi Mills

Admittedly the Queen of Typos, Cyndi Mills strives for none, but one or two always seems to slip in. She apologizes! Over the last 27 years Cyndi has had the opportunity to move around the country with her husband, Scott and their four children. Having lived in Chilliwack, Edmonton, London, and Petawawa. She stumbled into the world of journalism by accident – looking for a career that could give her the flexibility to work from home to be with her children and support her husband's military career. Cyndi is also a military parent as her two oldest children are in the military. Raising her third and fourth teenagers, she tries to keep sane by walking, gardening, writing, and spending time with her family while running Canadian Military Family Magazine.
