On the beach

A tour of the Normandy coastline honours those who crossed an ocean to fight tyranny   The sky is cloudy, but the rain holds off for this year’s commemorative ceremony at the Juno Beach Centre in Courseulles-sur-Mer, France, on June 6.

  • Alberta takes eight-ball championship

    October 4, 2018 by Sharon Adams
    Visitors to Estevan, Sask., are immediately struck by the distant horizons, endless blue skies and wide prairie city streets. In this city of 11,000, just 16 kilometres north of the United States border, support for the military and veterans runs deep. For many decades, Legion...
  • Regina Branch reopens with a new attitude

    September 24, 2018 by Sharon Adams

    Hearing loss and tinnitus are common disabilities among veterans, and understandably so. Continuous exposure to loud noise—the whomp of a 25-pounder Howitzer, the rat-a-tat-tat of an M1919 Browning, the engine-room clatter of a frigate, the roar of a CF-18—all can have an irreversible impact on...
  • Changes to hearing-loss disability benefits

    September 7, 2018 by Legion Magazine
    If you are in receipt of partial entitlement (1/5, 2/5, 3/5 or 4/5) for hearing loss, you should contact a Royal Canadian Legion command service officer to review your file. Why? Because on Feb. 23, 2018, Veterans Affairs Canada promulgated a new partial entitlement policy....
