Greetings from Germany!
« on: May 01, 2011, 04:19:18 PM »

Hello Canuckleheads,

Greetings from the land of the Red Shadows (and the Black Major, etc).

I've enjoyed this website and forum for the past three years now, but never bothered to register or contribute to it.  My communications have been limited to e-mails to Mike Heddle, to which he always courteously and promptly responds, so I have never had much reason to ask a question to the rest of the members on this forum.

Never have attended a Canadian G.I. Joe Convention, and doubt that I ever will.  Loved visiting Ontario when I was a kid, and was delighted to see bilingual G.I. Joe toys in Canadian department stores while shopping (it was the early 1980's).

Always befriended our Canadian military counterparts, and enjoyed visiting Newfoundland for R&R while returning from the middle east.

Even did my cold weather survival school right at the Canadian border.

As a United States military family relocated to Germany from Texas, we have corresponded with many Joe collecting Canucks, and have appreciated the kindness of our northern neighbors.

My sons and I are avid G.I. Joe fans, and incorporate the Cobra North characters into our joe-verse.  We are package openers, and my kids play on the carpet with their 2009 and 2010 Canadian G.I. Joe Convention set figures and vehicles the same as they do with their other Joes.

I don't know if a 2011 convention set will be doable this year, but I will at least make it a point to buy a t-shirt and be with you in spirit.

Great to hear from you.  Hopefully you'll get an opportunity to get back to Canada.  Or I'll get to Germany some day........

Welcome!
My dad served with the Canadian military posted to Germany, but that was 45 years ago!

General Hawk: Technically, G.I. Joe does not exist, but if it did, it\'d be comprised of the top men and women from the top military units in the world, the alpha dog\'s. When all else fails, we don\'t.
