We ask our service men and women to go to a variety of places around the world and perform a variety of tasks. The places differ widely as do the tasks we ask them to complete. From overseeing elections, to humanitarian help, to peacekeeping, to acting as consultants on not only military issues but civil reconstruction issues as well. It’s all part of being in today’s Canadian Military. This episode will recount two of the tours of service of Major Rob McBride of the Royal Canadian Regiment. The two tours being looked at are a single tour in Balkans and a tour in Africa. He will draw a comparison to the two tours so that you may better understand the extreme differences in where we ask our service people to go and what we ask them to do. His accounts of his experiences there will give you, the viewer a more accurate account of what are service men and women deal with.

The Veterans is a look at Canada's veterans, their experiences during their time of service and what impact it had on them. It covers Veterans from World War II to the present. All branches of the service will be included in this series. By examining this series episode by episode you will discover how Canada's military evolved over the decades into the modern, well trained and highly capable military it is today. You'll hear from those who were directly involved in that transition process. Those interviewed in this series selflessly served to help make this world a better place for everyone. Let us never forget what they had done and how much we owe them.

This project was funded by the Power Workers' Union and the Government of Canada.

    This is perhaps the best series documenting the experiences of Canadian veterans. It deserves to be widely seen.
