LETTER: War Amps helps overcome challenge

 ..
..

I am proud to be part of Operation Legacy, in which members and graduates of The War Amps Child Amputee (CHAMP) Program pass on the Remembrance message to the younger generation.

As Remembrance Day is fast approaching, I would like to pay special tribute to all men and women who have served in Canada’s military, and especially those who lost a limb or limbs in war.

I was born missing my left arm below the elbow, and have learned to overcome this challenge thanks to programs put in place by amputee veterans of The War Amps.

I am extremely thankful for war amputee veterans because without them, The War Amps would have never been established and I wouldn’t be the person I am today. They are the most selfless people I’ve ever met. After risking their lives at war, they came home and continued to serve Canadian citizens, creating organizations and foundations to provide support for those living with amputations and ensure everyone has the most successful life possible. War amputee veterans have not only done just that, but have also provided amputees like myself with a lifetime of experiences, unlimited opportunities, support, and a family that I will forever be grateful for.

On Remembrance Day, please take a moment to remember those who have and continue to serve. We commemorate their lives and share their stories so that their sacrifices will never be forgotten.
