The Royal Canadian Legion is planning to build a “Virtual Wall of Honor and Remembrance” to honor all deceased veterans. The appearance of the “Virtual Wall” will coincide with the National Remembrance Day ceremony, organized by the Legion on behalf of and for all Canadians. It will be displayed on the large video screens prior to the start of the actual ceremony on Nov. 11, 2012 and those thereafter.
As a way to honor their relatives and friends who have served Canada, Canadians are invited to forward a photograph of the deceased veteran to Dominion Command along with his or her name, years of service, element or force to which the departed belonged or regiment/unit. Photos can be sent by mail to Dominion Command, 86 Aird Place, Ottawa, ON, K2L 0A1 (no originals please as they cannot be returned) or electronically to RememberingThem@legion.ca or ALeurMemoire@legion.ca .
Any deceased veteran (including those who belonged to the Merchant Navy and or Ferry Command) whose death was attributable to any cause before or after they served (World War 2, Korea, peace support missions, Afghanistan, accidental death in Canada) will be honored.
