Veterans Week – military speakers needed

It’s that time year again when Canadian Armed Forces members all across the country participate in speaking engagements during Veteran’s Week. 

The program helps remind Canadians about the sacrifices made and continue to be made by Canada’s military members. 

Last year, CAF members gave more than 1,900 presentations across Canada, reaching more than 540,000 Canadians during Veterans’ Week.

As part of the National Veterans’ Week Speakers Program, Maritime Forces Pacific Public Affairs is looking for volunteers to give presentations at schools and other organizations across the Capital Regional District and Lower Mainland.

The key to the program’s success is the enthusiastic participation of Regular and Reserve Force members. Any CAF member can take part in the program; they just need the approval of their supervisor first. 

By volunteering to be a speaker, you can share your story of service with Canadians of all ages.  A website exists that provides prepared presentations for various age groups, useful information on preparing your own speeches, and guidance on using social media.

Please contact Lt(N) Paul Trenholm and A/SLt Kyle Reed for the Remembrance Week speakers program and let them know when you are available. They can be reached through DWAN or by calling at 250-363-5789.
