Plaque dedication

As rain started to drizzle, a short service was held at the Cenotaph on Saturday afternoon to dedicate a plaque marking the Afghanistan War, 2001-2012 which was recently mounted directly below a plaque installed in 1996 recognizing Korean Veterans and Peacekeepers.

Chaplain Jin Woo Kim conducted the service. The colour party included Joe Brink and RCMP Cst. Eric Borrowman, both Afghanistan veterans, Mike Marchesi, Wanda Olson, Butch Bouchard and Jim Craig with Gordon Graham acting as Sergeant-At-Arms. Piper Michael McLetchie played the Lament. President Steve Dills laid a wreath after reading the Act of Remembrance.

The event took place on the first official Korean War Veterans’ Day, as officially proclaimed by the federal government through legislation in June. 2013 is also officially the year of the Korean War Veteran.
