Norfolk OPP thank veterans
The Norfolk OPP have offered a salute to veterans past and present for the contribution they have made to a free, prosperous canada.
“We owe every veteran and current serving member a thank you,” insp. Shawn Nash, interim commander of the Norfolk OPP, said Wednesday in a news release.
“Without their sacrifice, commitment, courage and determination we would not be living in a free and peaceful country. This sacrifice has ensured our safety in which we live. How can we not pause and say `Thank you’ in remembrance of their great sacrifice?”
remembrance day is this Saturday.
const. ed Sanchuk, media relations officer with the Norfolk OPP, says this is a critically important time to thank a veteran. all surviving soldiers from the Second World War are well into their 80s and older and are passing on at a steady clip.
“Now more than ever, they are passing the torch of remembrance to us,” Sanchuk says. “all people of canada must ensure that the memory of their efforts and sacrifices and the values they fought for will live on for all canadians.
“Generations of canadian veterans – through their courage, determination and sacrifice — have helped to ensure we live in a free and peaceful country.”
