PRESIDENT'S WORD

Having served in the Canadian Armed Forces for more than forty-one (41) years, and having been a member of The Royal Canadian Legion for the past thirteen (13) years, I know how important it is to belong to an organization where you feel welcome and among comrades. The spirit of comradeship is what will keep Veterans and their families in their branch and encourage them to participate in the activities.

But The Royal Canadian Legion is much more than a meeting place; it is also where Veterans and their dependants can receive help to better their quality of life, whether with access to medical care and paratransit; knowing and discovering local help resources; and recognize and protect their rights, either with Veterans Affairs Canada or the different levels of government. We must not forget that our mission is:

  • To serve Veterans, including serving members of the military, members of the RCMP and their families;
  • To promote Remembrance; and
  • To serve our community and our country.

During my term, I plan to visit as many branches as I can, and to interact with our members. This will enable me to have a better understanding of the health of our organization and to know where to channel my efforts. Don't hesitate to invite me to your activities by using the attached form.

I also invite you to send me your accomplishments so I can share them with our members to inspire them. There is a lot of good in our organization, and the credit is all yours.


Until next time, in comradeship

Kenneth R. Ouellet
President
