Ensuring our veterans are always remembered can be a tall task, but it’s one that local veteran and historian Glenn Miller is up to. He will be partnering up with the Galt Museum & Archives in Lethbridge to host a special walking tour of Mountain View Cemetery on Thursday. The tour will help shine a light on the military history of our city and the veterans who have paid the ultimate sacrifice. Video Journalist Micah Quinn has the story.
Glenn Miller says the walking tour will highlight Lethbridge’s military history since the Boer War. Miller will also discuss the story of an Indigenous veteran who received a military marker through the Unmarked Grave Program.
According to Veterans Affairs Canada, the organization maintains a quarter of a million eligible grave markers in over 7800 cemeteries across Canada.
