HONOUR

SIMPLY PUT, IS A VETERAN,
WHETHER REGULAR OR RESERVE, ACTIVE OR RETIRED,
IS SOMEONE WHO, AT ONE POINT IN THEIR LIFE,
WROTE A BLANK CHEQUE MADE PAYABLE TO "THE GOVERNMENT OF CANADA,"
FOR AN AMOUNT OF
“UP TO AND INCLUDING HIS LIFE."

THAT IS HONOUR;
UNFORTUNATELY THERE ARE WAY TOO MANY PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTRY
WHO DO NOT UNDERSTAND IT.

Commemoratives

 

IMPORTANT NOTICE

The Canadian Peacekeeping Veterans Association (CPVA) does not approve nor condemn the purchase and wearing of private commemorative medals and other insignia by its members. However, CPVA members should exercise good judgement regarding the sentimental value of these unofficial commemoratives versus the greater value of the official service decorations which they wear in public. These medals and devices are not recognized by the Government of Canada and are not listed in the official order of precedence. Members are hereby advised that such commemorative devices are to be worn over the right breast only and may not be juxtaposed with official service medals or affixed to the ribbons thereof. Members are further advised to consult the official website of the Governor-General of Canada at http://www.gg.ca/honours/wear/index_e.asp and Article 419 of the Criminal Code of Canada to obtain more detailed information.
