Veterans Affairs Canada Celebrates Remembrance Day

CHARLOTTETOWN, PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND--(Marketwire - Nov. 11, 2010) - As in past years, Veterans Affairs Canada invited community members to visit the atrium of the Daniel J. MacDonald building after the Remembrance Day ceremony at the Charlottetown Cenotaph.

Visitors got a glimpse of the work Veterans Affairs Canada does to serve and commemorate Canada's Veterans. The Canada Remembers Choir performed while visitors browsed the various displays. This year's displays included the Canadian Virtual War Memorial where you could search for a relative; the "Heroes Remember" Web section where you could hear interviews with Veterans; the Valentines for Vets program; the VAC Facebook page and educational materials. Visitors could also learn more about the New Veterans Charter, mental health, and the P.E.I. Military Family Resource Centre.

Veterans from the Second World War, the Korean War and peacekeeping missions, local city police officers who have also served in UN peacekeeping missions, Cadets, and youth from Scouts Canada helped greet the public and staff some of the displays.

The Government of Canada places the highest priority on ensuring our Veterans and their families have the support they need—when they need it. In recent months, Veterans Affairs Canada has made several announcements to improve the quality of life for our Veterans.
