The impact that Support Our Troops and Soldier On has on families, and the ill and injured is life changing and meets the unique needs and challenges faced by members of the Canadian Armed Forces community as a result of their military service.

Feature messages

Dear troop member, we are so proud of you for everything you do for us. Because of you, we can live in a peaceful country. In my English class, we learned about the different wars where the Canada’s troops were involved. For example, we learned about the Korean War. During this war, 26 000 Canadians participated on the side of the United Nations and 516 Canadians died. There is also the First World War, 67,000 killed and 173,000 wounded. If I were at your place, I would probably miss my family and my friends.

I know that it’s really hard for you, but you have a lot of courage and you’re strong. Without you, the Canada would not be the same and we wouldn’t be safe in our country. I wish that you will be safe and that you will come back at home to see all the people that you love. Thank you again and again for everything you do for us.

Annie, La Pocatière, Quebec, Canada
