Moose Jaw Man Turns 105 Years Old!
His name is Miles Huntley. He's so old his own children are senior citizens now! He thinks that's funny. We had a number of people let us know about Miles' birthday recently and he won the flowers from Evans Florist, which we give away on the Birthday and Anniversary Calendar every weekday on 800 CHAB. 800 CHAB's Rob Carnie took some time to visit with Miles this week over at his new home, Extendicare. Miles says the caregivers there are treating him very well and he still enjoys the simple things in life like good company and having a laugh! Listen to his conversation with Carns in the podcast section of this page.

Lest We Forget
Mac "Lucky" Wilson served with the Canadian Army with Lord Strathcona's Horse during World War II. He signed up before he was legally eliglble in his hometown of Coderre, Saskatchewan in 1941 and spent years battling his way through Italy and France before the war ended. Never before has he talked to reporters about the war but, in his 90th year now, Mac is feeling the need to tell us at least some of what he went through in the name of freedom.
Listen to Mac and others, including 15 Wing CO Col. Alexander Day, talk about Remembrance Day 2014 in the podcast section of this page.
