My Papa Ross landed on Juno Beach and moved on to help liberate Holland in 1945. His two brothers’ stories were very different. One brother was sent to defend Hong Kong – spending four years as a POW in Japan – and the youngest joined the RCAF – sadly paying the ultimate sacrifice for his country – and family. Through my research I realized that my Papa Ross’s story and his two brothers’ stories are not only my story – but my nation’s stories.
