My personal thanks for your Call to Duty series. It was a tremendous success, and even today people are congratulating my wife and I on our coverage in the first instalment of the series.
We sent copies of the article from coast to coast to our widespread family, and they are proud that a local paper would spend its resources covering the history of war veterans that should have taken place many years ago.
During Remembrance Week, our activities group where we live displayed The Daily Courier's Call to Duty pages - fascinating and inspiring special publication sections on a number of veterans. They received attention from residents and visitors.
Canadians are thirsting for this information.
My oldest brother passed away recently in Quebec. We enlisted as volunteers, Aug. 28, 1939. He transferred to the Royal Canadian Engineers, serving in Sicily, Italy, Holland and Germany.
My wife and I flew to Montreal area for a memorial.
He never had a story printed about his gruelling experiences - and that is why it is so important for a dedicated community newspaper like the Courier to record veterans' history.
Our thanks once again.
