Please join in laying a candle which will burn until midnight in silent tribute to our Canadian Service Men and Service Women, past and present.

The principal speaker at the tribute will be Mr. Guy Parent, OMM, CD, Canada's Veterans Ombudsman.

Note: God’s Acre Cemetery is located off Colville Rd behind the Base Hospital inside the Gorge Vale Golf Course, between the 12th and 17th holes.
