I am sorry I had planned to write something new for this years Remembrance Day but unfortunately I just didn’t get to it. Last years post on Sgt. Tommy Prince is still very relevant today. A highly decorated Saulteaux warrior of the 2nd World War and Korean Conflict. His valour and skill serve as examples of a brave fighting man. Unfortunately he slipped through the cracks back home in Winnipeg and died alone.
This story should serve as a reminder to what our veterans gave up to keep us free and the debt that we as Canadians owe our fighting men and women.
Given that this coming week is Remembrance week culminating with Remembrance Day on Friday Nov, 11. I thought it fitting that I spotlight one of Canada’s and indeed Manitoba’s greatest fighting men.
How does a person sum up the life of one of the most decorated soldiers in Canadian history? Especially when he was treated as a second class citizen in the country of his birth.
