A moving presentation was given by our own Kevin Moore. He gave us an interesting and detailed history of why we take this time every year to honor those who have died in service to their country in times of war.
Related image He also spoke about the dedication of the Tomb of The Unknown Soldier in Ottawa.

We spoke fondly of one of our longest-serving veteran members Steve Zelinski who served honorably and was wounded in battle but still returned to the fight. This photo was taken a year ago of Steve Zelinski (on the left) talking to Roy Loach when we arrived to celebrate Steve's 100th Birthday. Other members spoke of their own experiences and of their friends or family members who served. See the recording attached. Kevin was thanked by Basil.
