Korea 2013

Korea

 

This year I was  part of a  delegation sent to South Korea comprised of Veterans, politicians and members of the Veterans Affairs Department to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the signing of the armistice. There,  I experienced firsthand the gratitude felt on the part of the South Korean people for the sacrifices of those Canadian’s who fought for them all those years ago.

 

During my visit I was fortunate enough to come across the grave marker of SIGM William Bruce Maddison from the Royal Canadians Corps of Signallers. I had the hour of serving as Honorary Col. Of the 722 (Saint John) Communication  Squadron for a time. Their role in wartime cannot be overstated
