Government MPs vote down attempt to create Victoria Cross review board


Government MPs have voted down the proposed creation of a board to review historical combat actions, including those of Private Jess Larochelle, with an eye to recommending Victoria Crosses where warranted.

Former Conservative leader Erin O’Toole drafted a detailed proposal after New Democrat MP Niki Ashton tabled a 14,129-name petition on May 19 urging the federal government to re-evaluate Larochelle’s decorated conduct in Afghanistan.

A banner day for RCAF fighters

“The Huns were like bees. They seemed confused and acted as though they did not know what they were doing,” said Warrant Officer Murray Havers, one of a group of Royal Canadian Air Force pilots to shoot down 26 German planes between dawn and dusk over the Normandy front on June 28, 1944.

The story of “one of the most brilliant achievements in the history of the RCAF” was told in great detail in a Canadian Press report the following day.

In a few short years, the Royal Canadian Air Force expanded from a small domestic force of 8 squadrons and 4,000 personnel to a globe-spanning air force with 80 operational squadrons and 250,000 personnel (including 17,000 women). The RCAF defended London, led the Normandy invasion, protected convoys in the North Atlantic, and took the fight to Hamburg and Berlin. RCAF pilots served in North Africa, Italy, Burma, and the Aleutians. And, the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan was one of Canada’s most important wartime activities. This talk will explore the RCAF’s many contributions to victory in the Second World War.

Dear Michael,

The intensity of preparations for the Memorial Day Flowers Foundation events at Arlington National Cemetery disappears the day after Memorial Day, but there is still much work for us to do.  First and foremost, to thank the record number of 2000 volunteers who signed up to honor those who have served our country.

The Foundation organized three events at Arlington National Cemetery this year.

On Saturday, May 28, the Foundation coordinated with ANC to have over 20,000 flowers available for visitors to place at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

On Sunday flowers were provided to sponsors, donors, and volunteers to place at sections around the cemetery.

On Memorial Day Monday tables were set up at the Welcome Center for visitors to receive flowers for placement at headstones. Gold Star Families were given flowers as they entered on Memorial Avenue. Sponsors made enough flowers available for all of Section 60 and volunteers placed flowers at each of the over 14,000 headstones.


Thirty “Core Volunteers” worked tirelessly to prepare the flowers for the three days of events.  These perennial volunteers came from all over the country, including California, Florida, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and the DMV; internationally volunteers travelled from El Salvador, Colombia, and Ecuador.

In-kind support

The flower industry donated half of the 250,000 roses and summer flowers for Arlington National Cemetery.  Transportation for all the flowers was donated by Armellini Express Lines, Younger & Son, DV Flora, and Bergey’s Leasing Associates.

This year proved challenging.  Worldwide logistics are still plagued by the effects of the pandemic, and the conflict in Ukraine put even more pressure on flower cargo flights from Colombia and Ecuador.  At one point, flights were delayed for a week, and there we thought the 100,000 sponsored flowers from Latin America might not arrive in time at Arlington National Cemetery.

The flower industry from California, Miami, and New Jersey came to the rescue, pulled product from their inventories, and made more flowers available than we ever had before.
