Veteran shares story, fears he'll be forgotten
The World War Two veteran remembers his time with a tank regiment 70 years ago. He recalls all of it: from being captured, to the names of the friends he fought beside.
Now he goes through newspapers, marking obituaries for soldiers, and lobbies to get them headstones.
As more and more of our older veterans die, the chances to hear stories like Don's dwindle, and he fears the war will be forgotten slowly once all the World War Two veterans are gone.
Here's his story, as put together by the CBC's Josh Pagé.
As a web bonus, we are also sharing two more of Don's stories. First, he describes two of the men who didn't make it back home from combat.
Don also had the opportunity to meet royalty when he was wounded.
