If you live in Ontario and served in the Canadian Forces in any capacity, the Legion wants to know your story.
The Royal Canadian Legion is gearing up to publish a Military Service Recognition Book later this year to help identify and recognize our veterans within the province.
It is intended to cover everyone who has served or is still serving – including those who have passed away.
Tom Jenkins is the service officer with the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 236 in St Marys.
He says they literally want to hear from everyone and anyone who served our country regardless of the intensity of your service.
Jenkins says if you’re the family member of a Veteran, even if that person has since passed away, fill out the form so their story can be heard.
He’s hoping for an excellent turnout from anyone who has ever put on the uniform.
Submissions can be made by any veteran or family members of a veteran.
They are done through a short, one paged form that is available at the Legion.
Simply fill out the form, include a photo of the veteran if possible, and they will be added to the book’s content.
All entries must be received prior to May 31st
