OTTAWA, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 05/06/14 -- As part of the Legion's ongoing commitment to Remembrance, Legion House will host the final leg of the day for the Soldier On Afghanistan Relay Team between 4-5pm on 7 May.
"For the past five days, some 19 injured individuals that make up the Soldier On Afghanistan Relay Team have travelled from Canadian Forces Base Trenton to Ottawa,' says Dominion President Gordon Moore. "Along their route they have been greeted by Canadians and celebrated at various Legion branches. The Relay is all about thanking Canadians for their support and for generating awareness about the programs available to ill and injured members of the Canadian Armed Forces. We are honoured to host this final leg of the day, as we too show our gratitude and extend our support through the Legion's programs and services," adds Moore.
Everyone is invited to come to this event at Legion House (86 Aird Place, Ottawa, ON K2L 0A1) between 4-5pm on 7 May to welcome the Soldier On Afghanistan Relay Team and enjoy a Giant Tiger sponsored BBQ.
Since 1926, the Legion has been at the forefront of advocating for programs available to ill and injured members who have returned from various wars. The Legion has always prided itself in serving Canada's military and Royal Canadian Mounted Police members and their families. As Canada's largest Veterans' based organization built by Veterans for Veterans, the Legion also prides itself on Remembering their sacrifices.
