Hardened Veterans

The Department of Veterans Affairs has spent $4 million over the past five years providing Viagra to Canadian war veterans to help old soldiers stand at attention:

Veterans say the drug has not only allowed them more intimacy with their spouses, but has also removed social barriers to discussing sex.

It's confirmation veterans were justified fighting for it in the first place, said Cliff Chadderton, who helped lead the lobby effort as CEO of the War Amps of Canada and the chairman of the National Council of War Veterans.


Chadderton, perhaps Canada's most recognizable veteran after years of War Amps TV ads, readily admits he's used the triangular blue pill.

In fact, as he talked on the phone, his wife handed him a copy of a sex manual.

"When I was 30 years younger, I would never have thought of it, let alone read about it," he says.

"But the book my wife just passed me is called Sexual Satisfaction. The author is a girl who's on a television program in the states and she says it perfectly: it's not about sex, it's about love."

Gee, Cliff, thanks for sharing!

Guess you're never too old to refight the Battle of the Bulge.
