3 The Royal Canadian Legion MANITOBA & NORTHWESTERN ONTARIO COMMAND A Message from the President I feel very pleased that I am able to introduce you all to our 7th Military Service Recognition Book. As many of you will know, I have had a long spell in the hospital. I am now back and ready to face the rest of my term. With our support this book will continue giving us memories of war and victory. This book holds many lives in its hands and keeps us thinking about the lives which were so radically changed in the years while we waited for peace. There were great changes that came from those conflicts. I want to give you all my hope for understanding of the individuals who were fighting and dying for our peace. I also hope you appreciate the contents of the book. In Comradeship, Mel Willis President The Royal Canadian Legion Manitoba & Northwestern Ontario Command 1
