It’s Remembrance Day across Canada today, but the annual ceremony of remembering those that served – the ones that came home and the ones that did not – began on Sunday at McCrae House with an event called “Thank a Veteran.” Several local vets across many decades of service gathered their to tell stories, share memories, and remind us why Remembrance Day is a sacred occasion. A few of them talked to Guelph Politico in this special video.
Thank you to Mike Willis, Dorothy Scott, Michael Seitz and John Ewasck for sharing your memories and your lessons. Mr. Seitz was especially a great time capsule of stories in regard to his military service, his story about being in Berlin when the Wall went up was the tip of the iceberg. All the veterans though were incredibly humble and generous with their time, and for those reason, and oh so many more, we thank them for their contributions and their service. Lest we forget.
