Winnipeg to Honour D-Day Fallen

| April 23, 2014

A big thank you to Mayor Katz and the City of Winnipeg for honouring ALL 16 of their local fallen D-Day soldiers as a part of our Canada’s D-Day Tribute campaign.

“We greatly appreciate and applaud the support of Mayor Sam Katz and the City of Winnipeg,” said Don Cooper, president of the Juno Beach Centre Association. “Winnipeg’s sacrifices on D-Day were not unlike so many other cities across Canada. We hope others will be inspired by this example and honour the memory of their own local fallen soldiers.”
