We tweaked it a little and added the words from Churchill’s inspirational speech to the House of Commons on May 13, 1940 in his first address as the newly appointed Prime Minister.
"...To form an administration of this scale and complexity is a serious undertaking in itself, but it must be remembered that we are in the preliminary stage of one of the greatest battles in history, that we are in action at many points in Norway an in Holland, that we have to be prepared in the Mediterranean, that the air battle is continuous and that many preparations have to made here at home. In this crisis I hope I may be pardoned if I do not address the House at any length today. I hope that any of my friends and colleagues, or former colleagues, who are affected by the political reconstruction, will make all allowance for any lack of ceremony with which it has been necessary to act. I would say to the House, as I said to those who have joined this government: "I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat."
We have before us an ordeal of the most grievous kind. We have before us many, many long months of struggle and of suffering. You ask, what is our policy? I will say; "It is to wage war, by sea, land and air, with all our might and with all the strength that God can give us: to wage war against a monstrous tyranny, never surpassed in the dark lamentable catalogue of human crime. That is our policy." You ask, what is our aim? I can answer with one word: Victory - victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory however long and hard the road may be; for without victory there is no survival."
The hood features the D-Day Wear® logo. Our logo done in red, white and blue, signifies a red maple leaf for Canada, a white crown for Great Britain and a blue Star for the U.S.A. During World War Two all those colours appeared in the flags our countries fought under.
With our past fundraising initiatives, people have enabled us to donate over 74 THOUSAND DOLLARS which was used to successfully commemorate the lives lost by Canadian soldiers on the beaches of Normandy during World War II. Now the fundraising goal is focused on providing professional service dogs for those members of our First Responders and the Armed Forces who suffer with PTSD. We invite you to please give generously to your local Service Dogs Organizations which will complement the funds raised here.
