It’s the least we can do
The Editor, As a veteran of the Canadian Forces I have spent many a day and period away from my family. I can therefore fully sympathize with the vets that feel unrecognized, disrespected and at times forgotten all together. This from many directions, including from our very own government. But that is another battle that we will fight at the next elections.
Many of our brothers and sisters have given so much and in some cases, made the ultimate sacrifice so that we may have a better life in this great country of ours.
It is time to proudly wear or display a poppy in sign of recognition and respect for these that have served or are currently serving their country. When you purchase a poppy, keep in mind that the Legion through your donations provides financial assistance and support to veterans, serving Canadian Armed Forces members and the RCMP.
I personally make it a point to thank those that wear a poppy. I encourage and thank you to take a few minutes to attend a Remembrance Day ceremony at your local cenotaph.
Lest we forget.
