This week is Veterans' Week in Canada, a week to remember those who have fought for freedom
Remembrance Day is less than a week away, and this week leading up to the commemorative day is Veterans' Week across Canada.
Honours and Awards Chairman at Vegreville's Royal Canadian Legion Branch No. 39, Rod Stewart, explains what the week is all about.
As part of the week, the Vegreville Legion Branch will be hosting a lunch on Thursday for veterans, spouses and surviving spouses.
Poppies are also available, and donations are greatly appreciated to go towards the poppy fund, which is what will be funding Thursday's lunch.
