Veterans’ Week is a time when Canadians across this
forex trading in south africa
honour the men and women of the Canadian Forces who have
stepped forward to serve our country. It comes with special significance
this year as our Canadian Forces are again fighting oppression and tyranny
Throughout Canada’s proud history, young men and
women have answered the call to arms and fought for their country. They
represent our children, parents, grandparents and great-grandparents.
They fought for the ideals of peace and freedom, and sacrificed their
lives so that Canadians may continue to prosper in peace and security from
The theme of Veterans’ week this year is
Share the Story. Sharing our Veterans’ stories will open our eyes
and define what it really means to remember. I encourage all Veterans’ to
take aside someone, be it a family, friend or fellow Canadian, and tell
them of your service to our country. Help us remember the good, bad,
scary and joyful times of your time in the service. Help us share your
story and remember your legacy.
Sadly, we do not know every soldiers' story. The
sarcophagus of the Unknown Soldier represents the 28,000 Canadian soldiers
who have no graves. It is a constant reminder of the price that is paid
in the fight for peace and freedom in all wars—past, present and future.
While we know not where they are buried or their stories, we will always
remember their sacrifice for our country.
To all Veterans and those actively serving, thank you
for your contributions and sacrifices for Canada.
