National Silver Cross Mother (S1 E12)

Each year, from among those who have lost a son or daughter during active military operations, the Canadian Legion selects a National Silver Cross Mother. Reine Sampson Dawe, the 2019 National Silver Cross Mother, is our podcast guest.
Reine Sampson Dawe tells us about her military family, with all four sons having served in uniform, and one lost in Afghanistan. She also reminds us why it is important to remember the sacrifice of our soldiers throughout the year and not just during Veterans’ Week.
