Service Recognition

volume 2 cover volume 1 cover




As the “Keepers of Remembrance”, Ontario Command of the Royal Canadian Legion is proud to publish an annual Military Service Recognition Book to identify and recognize our Veterans in Ontario, who have either served or are still serving in our Canadian Armed Forces, the Commonwealth or Allied Forces.

We invite you to visit your local Legion (Richmond Hill, Branch 375, 233 Centre St., East) to obtain more information regarding this Remembrance program and more importantly, to submit a story and photo of a Veteran.

Everyone is welcome to submit a story, including Veterans, relatives or friends.  Drop off or send your histories and stories to your local Legion Branch early. We accept them year-round. The 6th edition submissions are now being collected, and will be going to press in May of 2019. The 5th edition is scheduled for release in September 2018. The 4th edition has many submissions of local Richmond Hill and area Veterans or veterans with links to local residents.

Richmond Hill and the surrounding area have a long tradition of military service, and your local Legion would like to see our men and women included in this historic book.  You can find a submission form on-line at

This same link will provide on-line access to editions I through IV of the book, listed under ‘Recent Publications’.
