Valour Canada: The Royal Canadian Legion

This video is described as:

“The Legion is a living tradition which keeps alive the form of service and patriotism and in doing so adds new worth and meaning to all it touches.” – Georges Vanier, Canada’s 19th Governor General The story of the Legion begins with Canada’s experience in the First World War, and tells of exceptional individuals, including Lillian Freiman, Georges Vanier, Milton Gregg, Julian Byng, and Arthur Currie, who either helped found or ensured the success of an organization that began as a support and advocacy group for veterans, and evolved into a foundational cornerstone of countless Canadian communities. Today, the Royal Canadian Legion and its over 275 000 members continues to be the guardians of remembrance and veterans’ welfare from coast to coast to coast.
