Remembering the men and women who served the country in times of conflict and in peace is at the heart of Canada’s November 11 ceremonies and that is no different here on the Saanich Peninsula.
Part of remembering their service to the nation is the sharing of stories — from the front lines to the rear areas, supporting and training the troops to caring for them back at home. Without these stories, it would be even harder to remember the sacrifices people have made to help ensure our lives here at home are secure.
The Peninsula News Review would like to hear your series, or stories of loved ones who have served the country — both today and yesterday — as we approach Remembrance Day on Friday, Nov. 11.
We’re looking for people to talk to, who have tales — and even photographs — to share or family members they would like to recognize.
Send us your ideas at editor@peninsulanewsreview and please include the word ‘Remembrance’ in the subject line. Or, call Editor Steven Heywood at 250-656-1151, ext. 128 and leave a message.
We hope to include some of these stories in our coverage leading up to Nov. 11.
