We honor and show our gratitude toward the Men and Women in Service with the Canadian Armed Forces.
My father, Lew Whiteman, was with the infantry in WW 2; he transported troops, supplies, and orders to the front line and back… and he played with a band that entertained his fellow soldiers as they moved through Europe.
Jerry Cornell was with the Navy. When we visited Nova Scotia, we toured one of the ships used during the war and saw the extremely basic conditions the men lived under..
Both of our fathers were so young when they enlisted and thankfully both made it home safe.
