On April 30th., we hosted our Zone Convention – it was a huge success. I wish to thank everyone who helped in any way, you were greatly appreciated.
Our Pasta Fundraiser was down a little bit in May, but I hope the next one will see more people enjoying our superior Pasta & Meatballs – the next one is Wednesday June 15th.
As per the poster, our Strawberry Tea and Bake Sale is approaching quickly – June 12th., from 1 PM – 3 PM.

Sick & Visiting Chair – Respectfully submitted by Mary Anne Martin
Comrades, if you know of any Veterans or widows that are in the retirement and nursing homes, please leave their names in my mailbox and I will get them on to our visiting lists.
Also, I am in need of someone to do the visits at Collegiate Heights from September to December – our regular visitors will be in Florida.
Entertainment Report – Respectfully submitted by Mary Anne Martin
Saturday night entertainment has come to an end and will return again in September/October.

Karaoke night now has a new twist. You could win $50 if your name is drawn at midnight. The trick is, that every time you get up to sing, your name goes into the drum and you have to be in attendance to win. Also, there are secret songs selected by Michael, if you pick the song you win, if it is not won, then the pot grows by $20 for the next week.
To all of my Comrades, I wish you a safe and happy summer.
A little peak into the future: We have Sgt. Wilson’s Army Show coming November 12th to do two shows; one matinee performance at 2:00 PM and an evening performance at 7:00 PM on Saturday November 12, 2016.
Tickets will be: $15 for Veterans, those who served or are serving, nursing home residents, and;

$20 for others who wish to attend.

The tickets will go on sale in September

BIKER STOP FOR COFFEE – respecfully submitted by Wm. Bennett
This is the third year for our “Biker Stop for Coffee”. This safe haven for cyclers to park their bikes and have coffee (safe parking to show off your ride) is becoming very popular. To date, we have had an average of 14 bikes per night.
The 2016 session has started and will run until August 29, 2016. (weather permitting). We are out front from 7 PM until 9 PM. Please, if you know a biker out there, tell them about this weekly event.
On June 25th – the Bikers Rights Organization (BRO) will be using the front parking lot as a starting point and one of their venues for their annual shoot & scoot. The bikes will be here from 11:00 am until 3:00 pm and the riders would be pleased if you showed up to oooooH and aaaaaH their bikes. This is another way to bring awareness to our Biker Stop for Coffee nights.
CENOTAPH REPORT – respectfully submitted by Wm. Bennett
There is a company that is working on the old St. Marys Paper Machine Shop that is looking in to the repair of the cairn at St. Marys. They are in receipt of the application from Veterans Affairs and hopefully it will be successful.
HONOUR THE MEMORY
On D-Day (June 6th) at 11:00 a.m. we will be ‘re-planting’ our wooden poppies. They will stay in the garden until November 12th., when they will be removed, dried, and stored until next year.

The poppies are $10 each and will have the name of whomever you wish to remember printed neatly on the flower.

They looked great last summer – let’s have more this year. Call the office at 705-945-8721 to order yours in time for planting.

This year, the Branch is having a BBQ after the ‘planting’ ceremony. The BBQ is from Noon until ?

Hamburgers …………….$2.25 w/cheese……..$2.50

Hotdogs…………………..$1.25

This is a fundraiser towards our General Coffers.
A huge THANK-YOU goes out again this year to Lemieux Composting on Black Dirt Road for their donation of white dolomite for the second ‘poppy’ garden. This local firm has been tremendously supportive of our Branch so when you go there, please tell them Thank-you again.
ISIS and the Nazis have more in Common than you Think
In the aftermath of the First World War and its horrific trench warfare, the German military developed a new doctrine of smashing enemy defensive lines with columns of armour and then racing into their rear areas to create chaos.

In the beginning at least, this strategy worked pretty well. It was call blitzkrieg and, during the early days of the Second World War, it helped the Germans take huge amounts of territory faster than anyone imagined possible. (As it turned out, taking territory with fast-moving armour was one thing, but holding onto it was a much more difficult tactical problem)

And, speaking of parading, we have all hummed our favourite marching tune – so here is the first verse and chorus, in case you want to really sing it out:

The Maple Leaf Forever
In Days of yore,

From Britain’s shore

Wolfe the dauntless hero came

And planted firm Britannia’s flag

On Canada’s fair domain.

Here may it wave,

Our boast, our pride

And joined in love together,

The thistle, shamrock, rose entwined,

The Maple Leaf Forever

(Chorus)

The Maple Leaf

Our Emblem Dear

The Maple Leaf Forever

God save our Queen and Heaven bless

The Maple Leaf Forever
KOREA VETERANS ASSOCIATION

ANNUAL PARADE
The annual parade at the Sault Locks to remember the start of the Korea War will be held at 7:00 pm on FRIDAY JUNE 24, 2016.

Wreaths will be laid at the cairn in the memory of veterans who lost their lives while serving in all branches of our military including peacekeepers.

It is hoped that the general public will come out to support our aging veterans who served during the Korea War. Branch 25 will be taking an active part with the Band and Colour Party participating.

Signed: Larry Jollineau, President Korea Veterans Association.

The Land of the Morning Calm
North Korea disturbed the morning calm in the early morning hour sof the 25th. of June 1950 with a 4:00 am attck and the world was taken by surprise. The capital of Sourth Korea – Seoul was taken within a few days. Canada was not at all ready to go to war again.
The United Nations made a call for aid to South Korea and Canada’s Prime Minister had the full support of the Government and the House of Commons to take steps to preserve the peace in Korea. On July 5th., eleven days after the outbreak of hostilities, Canada ordered the Canadian Navy to answer the call.
The H.M.C.S. Cayuga, the Athabaskan and the Sioux were to proceed to Korea. They sailed out of Esquimalt on the 30th of July.

During the five years and more that the Royal Canadian Navy maintained a force in Korea, the eight destroyers serving in that force performed valuable services in the cause of the United Nations.

It might be pointed out that the three destroyers sent by the RCN to the Far East represented precisely half the total number of Canadian destroyers then in commission.

And that in order to maintain these three on duty in Korea, it was necessary for the RCN to set aside another two for relief duties.

Thus from July 1950 to the end of 1955, the RCN had to provide five destroyers either on or preparing for Korean duty. A considerable force for a navy that during this period possessed only eleven destroyers to which there were never more than nine in commission at one time.

Statistics however give but a very inadequate picture of the services performed in Korea by the destroyers of the Royal Canadian Navy. For over three years these hard working little ships joined their colleagues in the United Nations force and the ROK Navy in performing a great variety of tasks: Maintaining a blockage of the enemy coast; protecting the friendly islands on both coasts from amphibious assaults and sneak raids; providing support for the coastal flanks of the United Nations armies; bombarding Communist installations, gun emplacements, troop concentrations and road and rail lines along both the east and west coasts; screening the United Nations carriers from the ever-present threat of submarine and aerial attack; supporting the numerous friendly guerillas and ROK regulars in their unremitting harassment of the enemy mainland and islands; bringing aid and comfort to the sick and needy.

Korea’s isolated fishing villages; and performing the countless other tasks that feel to the lot of the UN destroyers serving in the water around Korea.

During the period of hostilities, July 1950 to July 1953, some 3,621 officers and men of the RCN served in Korean waters. If one takes into account the fact that many of these officers and men served more than one tour, it may be stated that the RCN provided personnel for 4,629 tours of duty in Korea. Many of the same sailors were World War II vets.

The United Nations did not intervene in the Korean War in order to crush the North Koreans and unify the country by force. The U.N. intervened solely to “repel the armed attack and restore international peace and security”. In this achievement, the achievement of a large number of United Nations working together, the eight destroyers of the Royal Canadian Navy played an effective part.


June 25, 1950 – Korean War Begins
April 24-25, 1951 – Canadians see action in the Battle of Kapyong
November 22, 1951 – Royal 22nd Regiment sees action at Hill 355
October 2, 1952 – HMCS Iroquois hit off Korean coast
October 23-24, 1952 – Royal Canadian Regiment sees action at Hill 355
July 27, 1953 – The Korea Armistice Agreement is signed at Panmunjom, ending three years of fighting
Come out to the parade on Friday June 24 at 7:00 PM at the Cairn at the Sault Locks and thank these brave soldiers.

SHOCKING – AND JUST WRONG
In the news on May 20th., I read where a Korea Veteran was disallowed accessibility to the Veterans Hospital in Halifax because “he arrived (In Korea) two months after the signing of the easefire”

Now on the information we have at the moment (please refer to: http://atlantic.ctvnews.ca/veteran-denied-placement-at-halifax-hospital-a-second-time-1.2909641 if you have internet access) this is a very disturbing event. In this article it mentions that Camp Hill (The Veterans Hospital) should be open to post-Korea veterans as ‘hospital copes with empty rooms.’ Former Veterans Advocate Peter Stoffer says: “You would think the government, with some form of compassion, would say the man did serve in Korea. You’re using a three-letter word to differentiate him from other Korea Veterans”
We will have to wait and see what becomes of this and hold out good thoughts for the Korea War vet.
UPCOMING SPECIAL EVENTS

  1. Ladies Auxiliary annual Strawberry Social is Sunday June 12 here at the Branch – tickets are available from the Ladies Auxiliary at 705-256-2941 or at the bar or in the office.

Cadet Liaison Report – Respectfully submiteed by Warren Pihlaja
Navy League Cadets are boys and girls between the ages of 9 and 13. Navy League Cadets come from many different backgrounds, but they all share a common interest: MAKING FRIENDS AND HAVING FUN!

Most corps (that’s what we call each group) meet one evening every week. Corps will also plan occasional weekend activities or trips.

Our program is based on a naval theme. This gives you a chance to try many different things, in a place where teamwork and respect are very important. Also, Cadets that do really well can earn promotions and awards! Although some Corps impose a small administration fee, cadet membertship in the Navy Legue Cadet Program is free. To make this possible, each cadet and their parents/guardians will be expected to participte in fundraising activities.

Fundraising helps your child develop responsibility, community spirit, and work ethic and ensures that every child can participate, regardless of their family’s financial situation.
Annual inspection – Saturday June 11, 2016 at 1200 hours at the Armoury.
For more information on the Navy League Cadet Program, please contact the Navy League Office at 705- 253-1561 or our Cadet Liaison Warren Pihlaja at 705-649-2855

CADET ‘MARCH TO VIMY’
On June 11th., 2016 the 2310 Army Cadets will have a “March to Vimy” parade. They start at Ford Creek, go through the Hub Trail and end up back at Queen Street. These young men and women are raising funds for a 100th Anniversary of Vimy Ridge plaque for the Cairn on Wellington & Gore Streets. If you wish to sponsor one of these cadets or you would just like to make a donation to this terrific cause, you can call Major Pierre Breckenridge at 705-946-5286.
LOOKING TO RENT A HALL?
If you, a family member, or a friend is looking to rent a hall for any function, we are available.

With the Ladies Auxiliary catering and an alcohol bar, the hall rental is $150 plus tax = $169.50.

If you don't want catering, but want the bar; or you don’t want the bar and you want catering, the hall rental is $250 plus tax = $282.50.

A copy of the per plate costs is available in the office.

We have a great, centrally located, reasonably priced facility open to the public. All dinners come with table cloths (excluding the Stag & Doe Meal) and there are chair covers to rent at reasonable prices.

Please feel free to give out our number and we will be happy to accommodate.

We will be represented at the Wedding Expo to be held in April at the Bushplane Museum. Looking forward to that.

We also have facilities for those wishing to do a “Memory of Life” celebration. The Burial Committee does a very compassionate service for Veterans and comrades free of charge – either at the Funeral Home, church or the gravesite. Please contact Elane Turner through the office 705-945-8721
LAST POST – WE WILL REMEMBER THEM

Oh, I understand,” I said. “A normal person would use the bucket because it’s bigger than the spoon or the teacup.”

Legion Stands By Its Service to Veterans
A recent article questioned the Royal Canadian Legion’s Service Officers and Assistant Service Officers conduct regarding access to Veteran medical files held at Veterans Affairs Canada (VAC).

The Legion provides assistance to Veterans including still-serving and retired RCMP members and their families to navigate the complicated disability claim application process.

In order to do this important work, VAC has a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Legion to approve the release of Veteran information provided the Legion affirms that it will be used solely for the purposes of representing Veterans, In addition, signed authorization to access an individual’s file must be provided as a precursor for Legion assistance. “Several years ago, the Legion identified unauthorized access to the VAC Clint Service Delivery Network (CSDN) and corrective actions were immediately taken.

There have been no founded complaints since then,” says Ray McInnis, Director of the Service Bureau.

Regarding the article’s mention of an investigation into unauthorized access that is currently underway by the Office of the Privacy Commissioner (OPC), while the Legion has not been contacted by the OPC, VAC did contact us and we provided all required information and are confident that our Command Service Offices have acted in accordance with the Privacy Act.

The Legion Service Bureau and all Command Service Officers are in full compliance with the VAC MOU. Command Service Officers are security cleared through VAC for access to the CSDN, they have the signed authority to represent and access is monitored and controlled by VAC. The privacy and confidentiality of our Veterans and their families are of utmost importance to Legion Command Service Officers and in accordance with the Privacy Act.

In any given year, the Legion helps an average of 3,200 Veterans with their disability claims:
I am extremely proud that for 90 years, The Royal Canadian Legion Service Bureau network has been providing representation to Veterans and their families to obtain the care and benefits they deserve”, says Dominion Command President Tom Eagles.

Terry Smith, son of George R. Smith – Life member with Branch 25 who lives in Winnipeg, sent along these pictures. George R. as he is commonly known, is one of our avid supporters even though he lives so far away.

Dad as most know now resides in Deer Lodge a Veterans Home here in Winnipeg. He has a single room and enjoys all the attention the staff pays to him. Mom visits with him frequently.



Mom is in a transport wheelchair simply for ease of transport between her residence at Kiwanis and Deer Lodge. She still goes down for all her meals with her walker.

You know that Dementia is a very difficult medical condition to figure out. We can sit with Dad and discuss the Porcupine Camp, all of his friends he made during the war, and stories about all of our family while growing up and where everyone is living and even telephone numbers of family members . But asking him what he had for lunch 10 minutes before, invokes the phrase" I run on the 10 minute rule. Don't ask me anything before that."

Everyone is doing fine and thanks to all for your Love and support.
Please forward to anyone who you think would enjoy these pictures.”
