Her memory will definitely live on for a long time, this will bring a lot more awareness compared to a trg point out in the shilo ranges.

I like it too. Good job on Calgary  :salute:  - too bad Winnipeg won't take a lesson from them.

Yes a WWII era airman who won the VC posthumously. Today's Winnipeg is very different. Its all about $$.

A fitting tribute.  :salute:
It's hard to win an argument against a smart person, it's damned near impossible against a stupid person.

CBC News reports that a new, Hero class, Canadaian Goast Guard Ship, the  'Captain Goddard, MSM' has entered the water for the first time in Halifax.


A Hero class vessel, a sister ship of the Captain Goddard, MSM
It is ill that men should kill one another in seditions, tumults and wars; but it is worse to bring nations to such misery, weakness and baseness
as to have neither strength nor courage to contend for anything; to have nothing left worth defending and to give the name of peace to desolation.

Sally Goddard of Charlottetown attended a Halifax ceremony Wednesday marking the official acceptance of the Captain Goddard into the coast guard.

By:  The Canadian Press,  Published on Wed Oct 15 2014
HALIFAX—The mother of the first Canadian woman to be killed in Afghanistan in a combat role says she feels her daughter would be proud to have a coast guard vessel named after her.
She says her daughter would have seen it as an honour for all of the Canadian Forces personnel who were killed during the conflict.
The artillery officer was killed in a Taliban ambush during a battle in the Panjwaii district on May 17, 2006.

The vessel was launched on May 17 this year, eight years after Nichola Goddard’s death and on the birthday of her father.
Sally Goddard says it’s moving for her to imagine the ship going about its duties patrolling the coasts, carrying out the goal of serving and protecting Canadians that her daughter believed in.
