Veterans honoured

Since 2014, the government of France has been awarding its highest medal, the Legion of Honour, to Canadian veterans that participated in the liberation of France in 1944.

Many veterans have now received this great honour but many veterans may not even know it’s available.

The Legion of Honour is a very significant official medal that is equal to the Order of Canada.

Living Canadian veterans who saw service in France or directly supported the liberation campaign between June 6 and Aug. 30, 1944 may be eligible.

There is no cost or fee involved.

If you would like to apply, there is a one page application form on Veterans Affairs Canada’s website or you can contact me for help.

For more information or assistance with your application, please contact Guy Black. The e-mail is korea19501953@yahoo.com and use the subject line Canadian veteran.

Or you can send me a letter addressed to Legion of Honour, C/O 515–95 Moody St., Port Moody, B.C. V3H 0H2.
