HALIFAX May 7, 2015 – The Memory Project hosted a recruiting event at the CFB Halifax Fleet Club attended by more than 100 members of the Canadian Forces.
The Honourable Myra A. Freeman, C.M., ONS, MSM, introduced long-time Memory Project volunteer speaker, and Second World War veteran, Sgt. (Ret) David Seager. He spoke of the benefits of connecting with Canadian youth as part of the more than 1500 volunteers across Canada.
“Halifax is home to a proud and rich military community. We are thrilled to be here to connect with the members of CFB Halifax,” said Jill Paterson, Senior Project Manager. “We are actively recruiting currently-serving Canadian Forces personnel and veterans to join our community of volunteers. We seek to represent all Canadian tours and conflicts so the next generation of Canadians can continue to learn about our military history from the people who were there.”
The Memory Project invites veterans and Canadian Forces members to share their military experience with fellow Canadians, young and old. Through an online archive and speakers bureau, more than 1.5 million Canadians have heard their stories.
