MP Guy Lauzon Mentions Veterans in House of Commons May 13, 2014

Frieds of Vets spaghSSN –   Our MP Guy Lauzon (picutred above in centre at Friends of Veterans event in Cornwall) spoke about Veterans recently in the House of Commons.

 

Mr. Speaker, I was honoured to join branch president Ken Heagle, members of the Cornwall Legion branch 297, and members of the public to honour the brave men and women who served in Afghanistan during Canada’s 13-year mission.

Sergeant Marc Léger, one of the first casualties of the war, was a proud resident of Stormont—Dundas and South Glengarry until his unfortunate death in 2002. His loss and his contribution to our country will be forever remembered.

 It was also a very moving experience to witness Libby Pelkey, a mother of two Afghanistan veterans, lay a wreath at the Cornwall cenotaph to honour her son Cody’s four tours of duty and her other son Kyle’s two tours of duty in Afghanistan.

 May 9, 2014, certainly was a day of honour in Stormont—Dundas and South Glengarry. We will remember them.
