Video: Veteran Mr. Arcand at the Aurora War Memorial Peace Park during Remembrance Day, November 11, 2015, Wednesday

Veteran Albert Arcand died peacefully in Aurora on Thursday, January 5, 2017; two years after this video was filmed at the Aurora Cenotaph. RIP.

The Auroran Story: “It sure brings back a lot of memories,” said Mr. Arcand. “I saw some of the actual D-Day ceremony on TV the other day and that was very impressive. It was nice to see they were able to do that. But, back here, I’ve been part of the Legion for about six or seven years and I was honoured to be invited to present the wreath for the troops and peacekeepers.” Originally from Saskatchewan, the retired Major enlisted in the Armed Forces when he was young and willing to help out.” Source: Legion members come together to mark D-Day anniversary

The Auroran Story: “Mr. Arcand is just one of 17 Canadian servicemen and women – veterans, currently serving, and fallen – now gracing Aurora’s historic main thoroughfare who have more than just service for King, Queen and Country in common; they also all have close ties to Aurora.” Source: Street banners pay tribute to veterans, serving soldiers and the fallen
