Remembrance Day 2016 at the National War Memorial

November 08, 2016
Enhance Veterans' Pensions


This year, Joe Sanderson, Director, District of the Prairies and NWT will be representing the National Association of Federal Retirees by laying a wreath on our behalf at the newly refurbished National War Memorial in Ottawa on November 11, 2016. 

After his retirement in 2001, Joe began serving on the executive of the Winnipeg and District Branch in 2006, and he has been a member of the National Board of Directors since 2008. Although he also has military service, this year Joe represents the public service wing of the National Association in our tradition of rotating representatives at the national ceremony among the three major components of our membership. Next year a former RCMP member will represent Federal Retirees.

Act of Remembrance
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old: 
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. 
At the going down of the sun and in the morning 
We will remember them.
