Le­gion cal­en­dars hon­our past and present mil­i­tary he­roes

Cape Tormentine Le­gion hon­our­ing mil­i­tary he­roes

Sackville Tribune - - TANTRAMAR - BY JOAN LEBLANC SPE­CIAL TO THE TRI­BUNE- POST

The Cape Tormentine Le­gion, Branch No. 81 is again hon­our­ing lo­cal mil­i­tary he­roes with the pub­li­ca­tion of an an­nual vet­er­ans’ cal­en­dar.

For the past six years, le­gion mem­bers have gath­ered pho­tos and in­for­ma­tion on those who have served this coun­try through mil­i­tary ser­vice, both dur­ing war­time, past and present, and dur­ing peace time.

Sonny Mccar­ron, le­gion first vice-presi- dent in charge of the cal­en­dar project, said mem­bers be­lieve it is im­por­tant to hon­our the ser­vice, and, in many in­stances, the mem­ory of lo­cal mil­i­tary ser­vice­men and women.

“The idea came from an­other branch in our dis­trict that has since dis­banded,” Mccar­ron said. “One of our mem­bers bought one of their cal­en­dars and our mem­bers de­cided it was a good project to take on. It’s not a big money-maker, but that’s not the rea­son we do it each year.”

He said le­gion mem­bers be­lieve vet­er­ans both past and present de­serve to have recog­ni­tion.
