The Original Canadian Sentinel

That's my dad, during the early Cold War years, standing on guard up North, against Soviet bombers. Yep, we're talking NORAD, baby! Yep, in the beginning, my dad was there...

Below: To the right of the guy in the foreground, my dad again, in front of a DEW (Distant Early Warning) line substation at Shepherd Bay, 1958. Note the massive radome on top.

Just being proud. And carrying on a tradition of standing on guard, albeit as a blogger.
