Our Canadian Veterans

My project is on our Canadian veterans. These men and women are the biggest heroes for our country. This includes their services and sacrifices, the forces, the history of Remembrance Day, the Canadian tomb of the unknown soldier, and more...



What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?

The bravery,courage and adrenaline they had was incredible. My great uncle's beautiful story and all he did for Canada even though he was Italian. How the wars impacted our country so much.

What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?

I learned that we must always have respect for the veterans who went to war and still go to war today.I learned about our Canadian history and the services and sacrifices.I also discovered that my great uncle was a Canadian army veteran in World War 2 and Normandy battle, he was wounded in his back.

How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?

My life today has more freedom than the veterans who fought our wars. I would never have to dread air raid like our veterans did. Today men and women have the choice to go war but the past veterans had no choice they were chosen even if they didn't want to.
