The Glorious Royal Canadian Legion (a spoof)

It is surely time we veterans gave the embattled legion a break and let them do the job they are so diligently attempting to do. It was must be extremely difficult to concentrate on the important issues while receiving an never ending parade of us whining complaining veterans at their doors. It is amazing how they have coped thus far, clearly these are heroic and dedicated associate members. We veterans must appreciate how these committed members turn out for ceremonies and parades. I might add in all weathers! They March smartly across the parking lots resplendant in their pressed pants, neat legion blazers,military trimmed hair and berets just at the right angle?
Their proud chests sport a collection of glittering and hard earned legion medals. They look every bit the unsung hero’s of the legion. People clap and cheer, they wave flags and proudly wear poppies. These dedicated individuals work tirelessly advancing the legions goals. Have any one of us ungrateful veterans ever considered the amount of work they do. Do we realize the great effort put into raising money to keep the legion alive. Has anyone of us bought one of the many beautiful and attractive Poppy embossed gifts? The lovely bird feeder designed on the sacred poppy or the many other Poppy embossed lovely gifts all available at such reasonable prices. Have we taken the time to taste the delicious legion lager. What about the Canada 150 legion medal, anyone can buy and wear this impressive item for a mere $25. The list is almost endless, and all we veterans can do is moan and complain.  —————. ———————————————————————————————————————
However, if you believe what I just wrote you must indeed be one of the above mentioned associate members! To be fair I apologize to the few associates that are members for the right reasons,difficult not to lump you all into the same pot!. If I have come across disrespectfully, good it was my intention to do so. What is good for the goose etc.the legion shows me no respect God Bless and keep reading
