Veteran, Veterans' Week will be a time to honour,
celebrate, remember and thank all those who served Canada in
times of war, military conflict and peace, and to teach our
youth about remembrance.
The theme for Veterans' Week 2005 is
Honouring Veterans by Teaching Youth. Throughout the week,
commemorative events and activities will be held in
communities all across Canada.
There are countless ways to commemorate
Remembrance Day, November 11, and Veterans Week 2005.
Commemoration can include observing two minutes of silence,
attending a local ceremony, thanking a Veteran in person, or
planning an event in your own community. The important thing
is that you remember!
