FOR MOST OF US, Kamloops envelopes our entire life.
The mention of the city’s name evokes thoughts of family, thoughts of work and memories of a place that, for better or worse, we have decided to call home.
Now imagine being a member of the Canadian Forces Snowbirds and hearing someone mention the name, Kamloops.
All you know about Kamloops is that’s the place the nation watched in horror as you lost your friend.
You probably don’t want to hear the city’s name spoken ever again.
Some Snowbirds team members may have been ready to come back to Kamloops this week – but you can be certain there were some who were not.
