2020 marks 75 years since the end of the Second World War.
To honour that milestone, and to pay respect during a time of physical distancing to those who served and those who serve today, veterans residing at the Caribou Veterans’ Memorial Pavilion in St. John’s recently took part in a virtual candlelight tribute to commemorate Remembrance Day, and to symbolically ‘pass the torch’ on to the next generation.
Eastern Health and its many employees would like to thank all veterans, and to honour and remember those who served not only in times of military conflict, but during times of peace.
Without their service and the service of countless others, Newfoundland and Labrador would not be the province we know today – a place of freedom.
We thank them for their service.
