MASTER COR­PO­RAL COLTAN IRV­ING, 24 FROM TRURO

Truro Daily News - - REMEMBRANCE -

As far as the ac­tual Re­mem­brance Day cer­e­mony goes, we’ll be march­ing to the Truro Ceno­taph in front of the po­lice sta­tion to par­tic­i­pate in the pa­rade there.

I feel like it means a lot to the younger com­mu­nity, to at least know about their past, even if they weren’t a part of it be­ing in the Cana­dian Armed Forces, even just for the gen­eral pub­lic to go view it, so that way they know some­thing about the past and what Cana­dian mil­i­tary mem­bers did for the coun­try.

If there were no younger peo­ple join­ing the Cana­dian Armed Forces to keep that tra­di­tion on, it would al­most feel like a waste for those peo­ple who did sac­ri­fice their lives for Cana­di­ans. The big­gest thing I can say is just show up, show sup­port for cur­rent and past mem­bers of the Cana­dian Armed Forces.

Make sure you sup­port the Le­gion, buy a poppy and show up on Re­mem­brance Day.
