Veterans owed our respect

NANAIMO: Public should be thankful for what veterans have done for them.

To the Editor,

I am a member of The War Amps Operation Legacy, which consists of young members and graduates of the Child Amputee Program who are dedicated to preserving and commemorating Canada’s military heritage by teaching younger generations about our nation’s wartime history.

It’s important to remember our veterans for countless reasons.

The individuals who left their families, homes and lives behind to fight for us and our country deserve more than just remembrance.

We should be thankful every day for what they went through for us.

The bravery, strength and courage it took is not something easily found.  I give all my respect to our war veterans.
