We Shall Remember Them

Remembrance Day is a day when British Columbians will gather at cenotaphs and ceremonies across the province to honour those who have served in our military and those who continue to serve our country in times of war, conflict and peace. 

During both world wars and throughout the Cold War, The Salvation Army provided Canadian military personnel overseas and in Canada with comforts such as hot drinks and snacks and established leave centres for rest and recreation. In Canada, our most visible wartime effort was assisting repatriated soldiers in the post war years.
The Salvation Army has also provided shelter for homeless veterans and advocated for those affected by PTSD. Small Christmas gifts, such as socks, were sent to Canadian Forces personnel overseas and throughout the year, cards and emails were written to personnel overseas and at home.
With no end in sight to armed conflicts, The Salvation Army will continue to bring hope to the outstanding veterans and service members who continue to make sacrifices to secure our peace and freedom.
