Aug 10 Message from Mike Babin:

Saturday, August 15 is the 75th anniversary of the end of the war in the Pacific, and marks the beginning of the liberation of Canada’s POWs from their terrible ordeal at the hands of the Imperial Japanese Army. We encourage you to commemorate this very significant day.

Please visit your local cenotaph, veterans’ section of a cemetery, military museum or other appropriate location and make an act of commemoration. This might be laying a wreath, reciting a poem or prayer, singing a song, flying the HKVCA flag, displaying a poster or any other heart-felt activity. Please take a photo, email it to us (at webmaster@hkvca.ca) and we will post it on our web site and on Facebook on a special commemoration page. Be sure to include information in your email such as location, activity and people involved. This will allow others across the country to “virtually” join in.
