Witness to Remembrance

Learning history where history was made. That’s the focus of this new Legion Magazine post aimed at opening up discussion on visits to Canadian memorials and battlefields. From France and Belgium to Italy, Hong Kong, Korea and the high seas, there are many sacred locations, including some right here at home, where Canadians served and died. Year after year they are visited by thousands of Canadians who want to honour this service and sacrifice. Collectively, these witnesses to remembrance represent a cross-section of Canadian society, from young students to families of service personnel to war veterans. We are please to present this online forum as a way of encouraging their discussion.
