Veterans of the Canadian Armed Forces have made an enormous contribution to our country and the entire world. It’s our turn now to thank them.
Founded in 2009 by Dr. Paul Kavanagh in association with the Canadian War Museum, Operation Veteran pays tribute to the men and women who have served our nation.
Thanks to contributions from generous private donors, all veterans can receive coupons valued at $11 each, which can be exchanged for refreshments or a meal in The Mess, the War Museum’s cafeteria. Since the creation of Operation Veteran, more than 4,500 veterans have benefited of this program.
Educating young people about Canada’s debt to our veterans through better understanding our history is a critical element of Operation Veteran. In honour of the First World War Centenary in 2014, your support to Operation Veteran will enable the Canadian War Museum to develop new educational outreach and programming for teachers and their students across the country.
By supporting Operation Veteran, you are providing warm meals for our veterans and helping to perpetuate the memory of their sacrifices and their invaluable contribution to future generations.
