Military Monday

Can I get away with including this item from the Ottawa Citizen about the RCMP in Military Monday? Many in the RCMP also served at one time or another in the military.

Andrew Duffy’s article is about ‘Buffalo Joe’ Healy’s tireless search for the RCMP’s buried and lost: How a retired RCMP superintendent obsessively tracked and documented the burial places of more than 80,000 people who have ever donned the red serge dating back to 1873.

Healy’s website,, “boasts files on everyone who has ever donned the red serge since 1873: more than 80,000 people in the RCMP and its predecessors, the North-West Mounted Police and Royal NWMP.” You do have to register to access the database.
