Yesterday [May 6, 2020] I was watching the repatriation ceremony at CFB Trenton for the six Canadian Military members lost in a helicopter crash during a NATO exercise off Greece. With sadness I was thinking about the importance of the closure for the families to have the remains brought back. As an ex-submariner, with the rest of my brothers, we all belong to this invisible brotherhood, regardless of the nations. In our lives as submariners, there were many incidents where the families never got closure. I just want to relate here several submarine incidents; that go back to the early sixties when I joined the Canadian submarine service.
