Letters to the Editor: Nov. 10, 2018

Since its inception, the LPF has arranged for the respectful funeral and burial of more than 153,000 financially challenged veterans, writes Randy Brooks.

READER LETTERS November 10, 2018


Help veterans with a dignified resting place
As we approach this Remembrance Day, WWI Armistice + 100 years, we reflect upon the fact that the over 650,000 Canadian veterans of WWI are now all gone. According to Veterans Affairs Canada (VAC), there remain 48,000 veterans of WWII and the Korean War. These “traditional” veterans are experiencing a very high mortality rate. Fact is, within just a few years all veterans of WWII will have passed into history as well.

Established in 1909, the Last Post Fund (LPF) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to ensure that no veteran is denied a dignified funeral and burial, as well as a military gravestone, due to insufficient funds at time of death.

Since its inception, the LPF has arranged for the respectful funeral and burial of more than 153,000 financially challenged veterans.

According to VAC, the number of modern-day veterans (post Korea 1953) stands at just over 600,000 and this year nearly 225 modern-day veterans will require financial assistance with funeral and burial … and the Last Post Fund will be there to assist in time of need.

The Last Post Fund owns and operates the National Field of Honour and Columbarium located in Pointe Claire, Que. More than 22,000 military funerals and burials have taken place there since this unique cemetery opened in 1930. The National Field of Honour became a National Historic Site in 2009 and is the only Canadian cemetery entirely devoted to veterans and their close ones.

In 1996, the LPF created the Unmarked Grave Program to ensure that all veterans’ graves are ultimately identified with a proper military headstone. Nearly 3,500 unmarked graves have been identified so far and military headstones have been placed in each case.

The Last Post Fund is supported financially by Veterans Affairs Canada and by private donation and bequest.

For more information or to donate to the Last Post Fund see http://www.lastpostfund.ca or call 1-800-465-7113.

Colonel (ret’d) Randy Brooks, Regina.

Brooks is the provincial president of the Last Post Fund.

Remembering Afghanistan

Reston Recorder
NOVEMBER 10, 2018

Remembrance Day is a special time to reflect on those who have lost their lives in military service and thank our Veterans, young and old alike.

For some people, unfortunately, remembrance can hit home with painful emotion on a daily basis. One hundred and fifty-eight (158) members of the Canadian Armed Forces from across the country died during our country’s efforts in Afghanistan between 2001 and 2014. The bodies of the fallen were returned to Canada for a formal repatriation ceremony, then carried down the Highway of Heroes before being returned to their families. The Canadian flags that were waved along the Highway of Heroes are now put away and our nation is beginning to heal. The friends and families of the fallen, however, continue to quietly bear their deep loss. The wounds of Afghanistan live on in other ways, too. Many soldiers returned home with injuries to body and mind that, for some, will last a lifetime.

Canada is remembering those who served in Afghanistan in many ways. The Government of Canada recognized and supported the friends and families with a “National Day of Honour” on May 9, 2014. On Remembrance Day 2014, there was a formal rededication of the National War Memorial to add the dates of the Afghanistan mission. Other memorials, like the Afghanistan Vigil that has travelled across the country recently, have also been unveiled and more will be in the years to come.
