    To Whom It May Concern
    Dear Readers,
    We can honour only a certain number of our countrymen I really look forward to the day when I will see these three men given the highest accolade and a grand salute for their contributions to sports and service of excellence as recognised the world over.

    Mr Gordon Greenidge
    Mr Desmond Haynes
    Mr Joel Garner

    These three distinguished loyal sons of Barbados, have done service of excellence in sports, gamesmanship as recognised by the Queen of Britain and the Common Wealth, and many countries across the globe.

    Maybe one day they will be given their rightful salutes.

    By Lester Zoom Headley; Author, engaging and motivational coach.
