It was 69 years ago today Nazi Germany accepted defeat, thus bringing an end to the War in Europe.
It was two years ago today that Garth Webb, D-Day veteran, founder and president of the Juno Beach Centre, passed away.
The Juno Beach Centre marks Victory in Europe, but also remembers Garth Webb, who by his courage, his passion and visionary spirit ensured that the legacy of the contributions made by Canada and Canadians in the Second World War will be passed on to future generations through the Centre.
Lest we forget.
