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.
