Time for a vent... I think I am going to break a personal rule about posting a "request for help" type of post. There are some things that people shouldn't or can't let go and this, I think, is one of them. Really, it's more along the lines of a way to get the word out and possibly discuss some things. Basically, the story boils down to this: Jerry Billings, one of Canada's most famous aviators, a Spitfire pilot in WWII, has been having tremendous problems with the Canadian Dep't. of Veteran's Affairs regarding his well deserved benefits. If you take a bit and look through this man's history, you really can't help but have a better appreciation for what it was like for that generation of veteran and the amazing things this person was a part of. A website has been started to help raise more awareness for him. http://www.jerrybilling.com/ http://www.jerrybilling.com/jerry_billing_dva.htm I think any vet is going to be a bit PO'd like I was the first time I was told about Jerry's problems. Even if you don't really want anything to do with the whole veteran's affiar aspect, reading this guy's history is fascinating and will also give you a great look at the Spitfire. The photos and video sections are fantastic! Plus a little throwback for the elders here who are the only ones who remember who Cliff Robertson was. Thanks for letting me vent and if you can find the time, take a peek through the site. If you're Canadian (even if you're not), a quick e-mail would be a great thing.
