Today, Canadians will gather in memorial sites, community halls and arenas, workplaces and homes to stand in honour of all who have fallen. At 11:00, we will observe a moment of silence to mark their sacrifices and to acknowledge the courage of all those who serve. Join us.
.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
We will remember them.
.
Joignez-vous à nous dans le Souvenir :
Ils ne vieilliront pas comme nous, qui leur avons survécu.
Ils ne connaîtront jamais l'outrage ni le poids des années.
Quand viendra l'heure du crépuscule et celle de l'aurore,
nous nous souviendrons d'eux.
Nous nous souviendrons d'eux.

Your Poppy donations at work: Lieutenant Colonel (retired) Tom Manley served 13 years in the Canadian Armed Forces, 13 years in the army reserves, and six years with the Calgary Police Service.
.
During his deployment in Yugoslavia in the 1990’s, Manley witnessed atrocities that have stayed with him to the present day.
.
“Those kind of things… they accumulate over time and they start to wear (you) down. I ended up going to the Royal Canadian Legion. It was the Legion that started a series of interventions that ended up making a significant improvement in my life and I’m incredibly grateful for the Legion for everything that they did for me. All of this was really predicated by walking in the door of the Legion some months ago and having them grab on to my case file and pushing it through Veteran’s Affairs and motivating the system to work on my behalf.”
.
“Wearing the poppy is a wonderful symbol of support but, at the end of the day, the support that the Legion provides to the veterans is invaluable and they can only do that with the money that they get from the Poppy Fund,” said Manley. “The help that I received was paid for directly by Canadians and Calgarians who, every year, put a dollar or two dollars in the poppy box.”

@marlenebunston Thank you ❤️🙏🏼

In the final 100 days of the First World War, Canada was called again and again to lead the offensive. The Hundred Days campaign was a series of battles unleashed by the Allied forces from Aug. 8, 1918, to the end of the war on the Western Front in France and Belgium on Nov. 11, 1918.
.
They came on the heels of German offensives that started in March, marking a return to open warfare. In a half dozen slashing offensives, the Germans had penetrated the Allied lines, but they had not been able to break through.
.
The 800,000 casualties suffered by Germany over four months of battle fell on the best trained and most aggressive combat formations. And now the Allies were ready to counterattack.

We Remember Pte Thomas EJ Welch who served from 2001 - 2004. Thomas is the son of the 2018 National Silver Cross Mother, Anita Cenerini.
.
Thomas received his Infantry Qualification in February 2002, with the distinction of being one of the top graduates in his platoon. .
He then became a member of The Royal Canadian Regiment, joining 3rd Battalion, The Royal Canadian Regiment, in May 2002.  Less than three months after returning from Afghanistan, Thomas died by suicide in Petawawa, ON.
His death on May 8, 2004, is marked as the first death by suicide of a Canadian Soldier after returning home from the Afghanistan mission. His death was later deemed attributable to military service after Thomas’ mother Anita Cenerini shared details of her son’s deteriorating mental health during and post deployment.

#GetYourPoppy for Canada's Veterans, like Spitfire pilot, Flying Officer ALFRED EARL JOYNT, /29889, 225 (R.A.F.) Squadron, Royal Canadian Air Force – born March 29 1914, died March 19 1945.

Alfred Earl Joynt was over Italy when his plane lost power. As he was exiting the plane, his parachute became entangled in the wing and he went down with his plane, 2 weeks before the end of the war. They found the wreckage in 1947 when some children found  his dog tags. Alfred is now buried in the Commonwealth War Graves Cemetery in Milan Italy. #LestWeForget
