Remembering the men and women who served the country in times of conflict and in peace is at the heart of Canada’s Nov. 11 ceremonies, here in Oak Bay and across the country.
Part of remembering their service to the nation comes from sharing stories – both those from the front lines from here on the home front. These stories help honour their sacrifices and ensure future generations remember what others have given up so our lives here at home could be secure.
As we approach Remembrance Day, Friday, Nov. 11, the Oak Bay News would like to hear your stories, or those of loved ones who have served the country both today and yesterday.
Share your stories and photographs with editor Jennifer Blyth at firstname.lastname@example.org
We hope to include some of these stories in our coverage leading up to Nov. 11.
