What is Letters Home?
We often remember the large-scale battles during the First and Second World Wars but rarely consider what our soldiers experienced daily. HomeEquity Bank with The Legion National Foundation and The Legion have launched “Letters Home” to bring the sacrifices of our soldiers closer to home. Using our digital map, you can see if a soldier overseas wrote a letter addressed to where you live today.
Please consider dedicating a Digital Poppy, in the name of the soldier who penned a letter, at MyPoppy.ca
All proceeds support initiatives that further veterans’ health, educate youth on the contributions of veterans and provide students with scholarships and bursaries to pursue their education.
