A Sense of Home

A Sense of Home


Thousands of miles away from my family, I would stand in line with my fellow soldiers in arms, British, American, Dutch, Australian and Canadian patiently waiting for my turn to order a bit of home. It is amazing what the line meant to me each day. It was a chance to share stories, to meet old and new friends, to read a book and most importantly to sense a bit of home and normality. The deafening roar of fighter jets routinely interrupted coffee orders, but never did I hear an impatient groan. Tim Horton’s provided a sense of home and each coffee a sense of normality at Kandahar Airfield. To those who served coffees to my comrades and I you did more than provide coffee you served a bit of home.

You have my vote> Thank you for serving and risking your lives for our country Canada. You help to make a better place for those less fortunate. We are so lucky and glad that Tim Hortons can make you feel a home away from home. Take care
