Time to share your remembrances for Nov. 11 special feature

Oak Bay News will share veterans’ stories in November

  • Oct. 18, 2016 5:00 p.m.

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 editor@oakbaynews.com

We hope to include some of these stories in our coverage leading up to Nov. 11.
