Videos celebrate National Aboriginal Veterans Day

Métis Veterans British Columbia Committee Chair and veteran himself, Dave Armitt, is featured in two videos produced ahead of National Aboriginal Veterans Day on November 8. The national day is in recognition of the contributions by Aboriginal people in service to Canada, particularly in the Korean, First World and Second World Wars. We aim to honour and remember our Métis people each year who have served or continue to serve with great pride, sacrificing for our freedom. In the videos, Armitt briefly explains the history of Métis and Aboriginal service and why it is important that we recognize those who served both on National Aboriginal Veterans Day and Remembrance Day on November 11.
