    Thanks for posting that. I had heard about that battle but never got good info about Canadian involvement in their role as UN Peacekeepers.

    Re: Cnn "1968"

    Wow. You participated in anti-war protests and now you collect toy soldiers. Kinda interesting. I am saying that as an observation, not as any judgement on you.

    Re: Black Robe (1991)

    I remember that film. I really liked it because it covered a period not often seen on film (I can't think of another film of a similar subject matter) I think I recorded it off cable onto a DVD.

    I read the book in 5th grade as a class assignment and loved it (most of the other kids didn't care for it). I also read it a few times as an adult, as well as saw the movie.

    Re: 2018 Texas Toy Soldier Show Flyer

    Thanks everyone. I have never been to a toy soldier show and only collect sporadically. Most of my toy soldiers are Britains left over from childhood.

    I think I may give this show a try.

    Re: 2018 Texas Toy Soldier Show Flyer

    I've never been to a toy soldier show and I live in Dallas. This should make it a 4-5 hour drive (depending on Traffic). Even though I don't know anyone I am thinking of attending. About how many...
