Stories from the Frontlines

Every person who served in World War II has a story. Their experience was unique: whether they served in the army, navy or air force, overseas on the front lines, at bases in England or at bases throughout Canada. 
The following stories represent the remarkable contributions made by the men and women of the Okotoks district who nobly demonstrated courage, commitment and country before self.

We will be adding new stories weekly to this virtual exhibit between May 8, 2020 (the 75th anniversary of VE Day) and Aug. 15, 2020 (the 75th anniversary of VJ Day – Victory over Japan).
