Legion plans appreciation day for Afghanistan veterans

OTTAWA - The Royal Canadian Legion is planning a nation-wide Afghanistan Veterans Appreciation Day to demonstrate its gratitude to the serving men and women, and their families, for their dedication during the Afghanistan combat mission.

“Words are not enough to show how grateful we are,” said Dominion President Patricia Varga.

As branches have different operating schedules, these events will take place on or about Aug. 20.

Afghanistan veterans and their families will be special guests and each veteran will receive a gift and will be offered a free one year membership to the Legion.

Event agendas will vary from branch to branch, but each will include a short Remembrance ceremony to honour those who have fallen.  Anyone interested in participating in these events should contact their local branch.
