Markham Remembers

Remembrance Day is a day for all Canadians to remember the men and women who served and sacrificed for our country.

This Remembrance Day Markham remembers the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War, and all those that have sacrificed for our freedom.

During this time of Remembrance, the City invites you to leave a message in the virtual Book of Remembrance to honour the sacrifice of all those who have fallen, served, and still serve.

We Remember not only the veterans who have served Canada and UK, but also the courageous animals who stood by their sides. The war horses, the dogs and the pigeons that carried the vital messages.

Before we moved to Canada, World War I and II was just part of my History book. Then, as we immersed in Canadian culture, it become very real. Listening to stories from veterans, and witnessing how deep the war touched so many and so deeply. I am thankful. I want to remember and paid tribute to those who lost their lives fighting for the beautiful Canada that today is my home, my kid's home and our future. Let's remember.

We would like to remember our Dad, Thomas P Keeble who fought in World War II with the Irish Regiment. During his service he was injured and hospitalized many times, especially during the campaign in Italy. He lived with the shrapnel and pain for the rest of his life. He was a former President of the Markham District Veterans Association. Rest In Peace ❤️
