Lest we forget

The Whitehorse Legion would like to thank the First Nations people of the Yukon for their contributions to Canada’s war efforts. Approximately 12,000 aboriginal people from across Canada served in the First and Second World Wars and Korean War. Many more served during the Cold War and the Afghanistan War and quite a few are still on active duty today.

The 8th of November has been set aside as National Aboriginal Veterans Day to pay remembrance to those brave men and women who have served with honour and pride, some paying the ultimate sacrifice.

On November 11, join us in remembering all those who have served our great nation and the many who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. Veterans, RCMP, Legionnaires, Rangers, Cadets and many other organizations and individuals, family and friends will be gathering at 10 a.m. at the Canada Games Centre for the Whitehorse Remembrance Day service.

We hope to see you there.

Joseph R. Mewett,

CD (Sgt ret’d) President, Royal Canadian Legion Branch 254
