The Canadian Forces have released a YouTube video showing the work of Canadian soliders in the days leading up to Remembrance Day.
This "video highlights honouring those who have fallen and those who continue to serve," the YouTube post states.
The nearly 3 minute long short features video clips of Canadian soliders at home and abroad, highlighting the work they do daily and showing the sacrifices they make.
First showing modern video of our troops, the clip moves into split screen shots of our soldiers today and those of times past, sending a message to average Canadians that though the equipment and methods have modernized, at the end of the day, not much has changed.
From playing in marching bands to paying tribute to veterans, kissing their families when they arrive home on leave, and bravely wading through the trenches, this video gives us an inside look at what the life of a Canadian soldier is like.
Viewers will notice a characteristically Canadian copyright at the end of the video: © Her Majesty the Queen in Right of Canada, represented by Minister of National Defence, 2012.
With striking images and background music that is sure to give you chills, this Canadian Forces short emphasizes just how lucky we are in Canada to have soldiers fighting for our freedom.
