What is Record of Service?
Record of Service, a podcast presented by The Memory Project. In this series, we bring you interviews with Canada’s veterans—their stories of life, loss and service. A new episode every week until November 11.
The Memory Project Speakers Bureau and archive connects veterans and Canadian Forces members with school and community groups from coast to coast. A program of Historica Canada, the Memory Project has been made possible in part by the Government of Canada.
