    He is one of the reasons they call it The Greatest Generation. Canadian Army veteran Russell Thompson of Seeley’s Bay, Ontario, who will turn 99 in a few short months, embodies the values that made this country great. Read about his wartime adventures in Holland, and his life after the war, on Wartime Wednesdays.

    What a great story. Even though he is 99, he looks wonderful and could probably go another 99.
