As Canadians get ready for Canada 150 celebrations, let us never forget the sacrifice and bravery of those who served our Country and those members currently in The Canadian Armed Services – who are overseas and at home.
Canada is a place of peace – and for that – we can thank our military members who have served, and are serving this great country with honour.
Thank you Royal Canadian Legion Branch 25 for continuing to elevate and honour The Canadian Armed Services.
