More Than a Wreath: The Journey to Honor Our Veterans

Many WAA supporters will recognize the support that Walmart has given each year, particularly on the transportation side of things as they donate time, fuel, and equipment to help deliver the wreaths nationwide. Many of the Walmart drivers are selected in recognition of their own years of military service. In addition to supporting the WAA mission on the transportation and logistics side, the Walmart Foundation also sponsors over 10,000 wreaths placed at a number of participating locations including Arlington National Cemetery and Fayetteville National in Arkansas.

World War I: True Stories from Vimy to Victory

When the First World War started in 1914, Canada’s population was less than 8 million, yet more than 620,000 enlisted to stand up to tyranny. Many of the surviving soldiers felt compelled to share their stories—not necessarily with everyone, but with those who had also served—and Legion Magazine helped their voices be heard. Many of those stories, accompanied by dozens of dramatic photos, are collected in this new special issue.
