I am a member of The War Amps Operation Legacy, which consists of young members and graduates of the Child Amputee (CHAMP) Program dedicated to preserving and commemorating Canada’s military heritage by teaching younger generations about our nation’s wartime history.
I have had the privilege to learn about Canada’s military heritage and also know what it is like to live without a limb – a strong bond that I share with war amputee veterans. CHAMP was started by war amputee veterans and I want to give back to those who have given me so much.
The War Amps has produced a number of internationally award-winning documentaries about Canada’s military heritage. D-Day: The Story of the Canadian Assault Troops tells the story of how the Canadian troops got farther inland than any other force. The story is told by a soldier who fought with the troops in Normandy and gives a Canadian perspective on this important day in Canadian history.
I encourage all of you to learn more about Canada’s history by means of The War Amps Military Heritage Series documentaries, which can be ordered at waramps.ca.
