This is the monument that sits in the park on Lincoln Avenue in Hanley, Saskatchewan. It was created in remembrance of all the military people that had served Canada in world conflicts.In approximately 2008-2009, Branch #258 of the Royal Canadian Legion were afforded funds to repair and spruce up the monument. Many hours were put in sandblasting, painting and sprucing the monument up. I was the local President of the Legion at the time. Unforunately the project never was fully completed.In the last short while; two residents (and maybe more), took it upon themselves to finish the project and complete the repair. This is especially meaningful in that the Korean Conflict was settled on July 27th, 1953. The black plague you see in the middle of the picture is a plague remembering this conflict.Bravo Zulu to the two people that I know that did this work. That being Don Law and former Legion President Ron Earis. It looks wonderful and very well completed.As a former member of the Canadian Armed Forces I truly thank these kind gentlemen for the work that they carried out for all current and former veterans of the Canadian Military
