OUR JOURNEY IN 2019 TO FOLLOW IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF THE HEROES OF HURON IN NORTH-WEST EUROPE IN WORLD WAR I & WORLD WAR II.

Utah Beach Landing Craft

In April of 2019, a group of 7 men made a journey to Europe will the goal of following our Canadians from Juno Beach on the Normandy coast through France, Belgium, the Netherlands and then into Germany. The group consisted of men who were interested in the history of our Canadian fallen, the military history and its significance in our lives today. We also were going to experience the emotions one would feel when you visit the cemeteries and memorials where our young men are honoured and remembered.

THE MILITARY CEMETERIES OF EUROPE

COMMONWEALTH WAR GRAVES CEMETERIES AND MEMORIALS

Recently, I took a group of men who are interested in the history of the First and Second World Wars to Europe for 17 days. We called ourselves "the magnificent seven". Some of the group had been overseas a number of times previously and some had never experienced the emotions of what our Canadians sacrificed and died for.

Why Should Every Canadian Remember?

On Remembrance Day, which falls on November 11th, we in Canada take a moment to pause and to remember all of those who served Canada. We stand and we honour those who fought during The Great War 1914-1921, World War 2 during 1939-1946, the Korean War of 1950-1953, and the War in Afghanistan from 2002-2014. More than 1 ½ million Canadians stood up to serve their country and 113, 050 paid the supreme sacrifice never again to return home to Canada and to their loved ones.
