The Act of Remembrance
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old,
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
As Grenadiers we understand and appreciate that great deeds cannot die.
For every day, when we put our Grenadier uniform on, the sense of duty, regimental pride and dedication to our King and Country is re-instilled in each of us.
This is the same inspiration that spurred our Regimental forebears to dedicate themselves, through periods of war and peace, to the task at hand throughout our Grenadier history.
It is the same inspiration and professional dedication to our duties that continues to shape what we as Grenadiers are today, and in our future. WE REMEMBER THEM.
Colonel J. Paul de B. Taillon OMM, CD, Honorary Colonel
To think of words best to describe my feelings about Remembrance Day is very emotional and difficult – they are stored in my heart. But I say thank you:
To the heroes who gave their last measure to my freedom- Thank you.
To the heroes who gave their last measure to my loved ones, family, and friends for their freedom- Thank you.
To the heroes who gave their last measure to us all for Canada’s freedom- Thank you.
My prayer is that we be deserving of their sacrifice.
That those Canadian heroes, looking down upon us from Heaven, may you say to us one day: “Job well done and thank you for defending and protecting the freedom of my loved ones, my family, my friends, and that of my beautiful and beloved county- Canada.”
God bless our fine Canadian Soldiers – past, present, and future, We Thank You.
Ginger Petty, Honorary Lieutenant-Colonel
“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.”
