Quest to honor our Veterans continues
Following the event at the Sherbrooke Armoury on May 9th, when twenty-six local World War Two Veterans received certificates of recognition and commemorative lapel pins for their service, the search continues for living or non-living Veterans from the Korean War and living Veterans from the Second World War. Robert Groulx, the Vice-president of Dominion Command of the Army Navy Air Force Veterans in Canada has been working on this project for over a year and is hoping to find more Veterans who meet the criteria. Mr. Groulx can be contacted at 819 565-1904.
