Nor­folk OPP thank vet­er­ans

Simcoe Reformer - - NEWS -

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.”
