No to both.  I still have some old copies of "Sentinel" kicking around though.  I guess I am not the nostalgic type in that respect.  After 41 years of Military/Public Service I suppose I had my fill.  I still occasionally run into old comrades and people I worked/served with or served together on various federal committees over the years.  Most like me are retired.  I do read a lot of military history primarily about the two world wars.    Military technology has always interested me too.

As I mentioned a while back, I tried to enlist in the Canadian Reserves. I tried 20 years ago, but my work would not allow the eight weeks off for basic training. Now retired, I felt I had something to offer and the time to do it. I'm deemed to old as they said I would need to finish a three year commitment before I turned 60. Oh well.

We can only hope.  It will take a Minister to make that kind of decision I am sure.
