The Royal Canadian Legion in the Western Zone of the USA including Mexico
Read the article on page 79 in the November/December 2017 issue of The Legion Magazine. It describes the project that obtained markers for Canadian Veteran’s that are buried in the Inglewood Park Cemetery in Inglewood, California. Our Zone was instrumental in seeing this project through to completion.
Every member should set aside 17 minutes and watch this. Lots of interesting history and an education on what the Legion is all about.

One of our members requested that we feature the Canadian Starfighter Museum in Winnipeg. Visit their webpage at:http://www.canadianstarfightermuseum.ca/

Approximately 150 Canadian veterans of World Wars I and II have rested in unmarked graves in the Inglewood Park Cemetery, Inglewood, California for many years. Following a 5 year effort by Veterans Affairs Canada and the Royal Canadian Legion in California the first 10 markers have been set to honor these men and women. The balance will be set over the coming months. Now we need to find the right agency in the British Government that will do the same for their veterans that rest nearby.
