OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Nov. 10, 2014) - On behalf of its 185,000 members, including more than 60,000 veterans, the National Association of Federal Retirees offers its gratitude to the men, women, and their families who have sacrificed for the freedoms and democracy that all Canadians proudly enjoy.

At 11:00 AM EST on November 11, 2014 in Ottawa, Lieutenant Colonel Peter Kerr (ret'd.), Canadian Forces' Decoration recipient and Director with the National Association of Federal Retirees, will lay a wreath during the National Remembrance Ceremony on behalf of the Association's members.

At the eleventh hour on the eleventh day of the eleventh month, please take the time to pause to mark the sacrifice and honour of Canada's veterans, military, RCMP and first responders.

To all of our veterans and their families, thank you for answering the call to serve, and for making Canada and the world a better place to live.
