RECOGNITION BOOKS NOW ONLINE
As the “Keepers of Remembrance”, Ontario Command is proud to publish an annual Military Service Recognition Book to identify and recognise many of our Veterans in Ontario, who have either served, or are still serving in our Canadian Armed Forces, the Commonwealth or Allied Forces.
We invite you to submit a story and photo of a Veteran. Everyone is welcome to submit a story, including Veterans, relatives, or friends. Please fill out the form available at http://www.on.legion.ca/remembrance/military-service-recognition-book and drop it off at Branch 530, ATTN: Bob Berg. If you wish to discuss the submission procedure, please call the Branch office at (519) 886-4790, and ask to make an appointment with Branch President Berg. Please do not send them to our Provincial Command Office, they must go through the Branch.
This project not only produces an annual Military Service Recognition Book, but also raises funds through a telephone appeal to the general public and through advertising sales. The book publisher, Fenety Marketing, conducts a telephone appeal on our behalf to private citizens and the business community throughout Ontario. Funds raised through the programme are being utilised to support various Veterans Transition Programmes that in turn will assist our Veterans who suffer from various challenges they face through their day to day lives.
Printed copies of the books are given to those in the book, or their families, and a limited number of copies are available at the Branch.
All completed books (Volumes 1-4) are available for download from the Ontario Command website http://www.on.legion.ca/remembrance/military-service-recognition-book
In the lower right corner, you will see "recent publications" - simply click on the volume of your choice, and you will get a .pdf file of the book.
We invite you to share your story or the story of a loved one through your local Legion Branch, and to browse the first four volumes at your leisure.
