The War Amps be­gins its 2016 key tag mail­ing to P.E.I. res­i­dents this week, mark­ing the 70th an­niver­sary of this ser­vice. Launched in 1946 so re­turn­ing war am­putees could not only work for com­pet­i­tive wages, it also pro­vided a ser­vice to Cana­di­ans that would gen­er­ate funds for the as­so­ci­a­tion’s many pro­grams. The ser­vice con­tin­ues to em­ploy am­putees and peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties and has re­turned more than 1.5 mil­lion sets of lost keys.
