2005: Year of the Veteran
Cheryl's Weekly Feature



Each year, Canada marks Veterans' Week from November 5 to 11. This particular year is special because the Government of Canada has declared 2005 the Year of the Veteran.

As a highlight of 2005 the Year of the 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!
