The Saskatchewan Veteran Service Club Support Program is much appreciated by the ANAVETS
units in our province, ANAVETS
Saskatchewan Provincial Command President Alf Christensen said.
* Lorne McCartney, of the ANAVETS
, reminds me that discounted fares on VIA Rail are still available for Canadian Forces members, veterans and their immediate families in all classes and for all destinations.
Through the courtesy of Lorne McCartney of the Army Nany and Air Force Veterans in Canada (ANAVETS
), I received results of a comparison study between the United Kingdom's Armed Forces Compensation Scheme and our own New Veterans Charter.
As a veteran of 55 years with the Army, Navy & Air Force Veterans (ANAVETS
) and 28 years as a member of the Royal Canadian Legion, I was appalled by the leadership of the Conservative and Bloc Quebecois along with their MPs, who were so hungry for power and greed they were going to topple the government because of the sponsorship scandal.
While Les Peate's suggestion of a paid holiday for veterans is commendable, might I suggest a grant for different organizations (be it R.E.L., ANAVETS
, KVA, individual units, etc.) based on the number of actual veterans in the organization.
