    One is the standard number. Military members wear one, on the left side of the chest, over the heart. Or on the left side of their head gear.

    What is a veteran ? Any one who has served in our Canadian Forces, and in particular those who served in a war zone. In the past 20 years that covers Bosnia, Croatia, Haiti, the former Yugoslavia, Rwanda, East Timor, and Afghanistan.

    In the CF combat arms trades, just about everyone has been overseas, in some cases 3 or 4 times now.
