Veterans' Week runs from November 5 to 11. This year's theme is Share the Story. During Veterans' Week 2006 and beyond, Canadians are encouraged to talk with local Veterans or Canadian Forces members about their stories and to share their personal stories and thoughts on remembrance with others. By learning from our Veterans and sharing in their stories, Canadians, especially youth, can help preserve our history for future generations.
