I am a member of The War Amps Operation Legacy, which consists of young members and graduates of the Child Amputee (CHAMP) Program who are dedicated to preserving and commemorating Canada’s military heritage by teaching younger generations about our nation’s wartime history.

I have had the privilege to learn about Canada’s military heritage and also know what it is like to live without a limb — a strong bond that I share with war amputee veterans. CHAMP was started by war amputee veterans and I want to give back to those who have given me so much.

The War Amps has produced many documentaries about our Canadian military heritage, such as “A Vimy Veteran Remembers.”

Video vignettes

Along with the documentaries,

it has also produced two-minute vignettes that can be viewed on The War Amps YouTube channel at

I encourage all of you to learn more about Canada’s history by means of The War Amps Military Heritage Series documentaries, which can be ordered at
