"Today, we ask a new generation of Canadians to surrender their time, volunteer their hearts, and take one year to fully remember a century of sacrifice. That year is 2005 - The Year of the Veteran." - Minister of Veteran's Affairs, The Honourable Albina Guarnieri.
This project was undertaken, through generous support from the John Deutsch University Centre, in order to commemorate the lives of those Queen's students who died in defense of their country. Every year it is important to honour veterans and their service, which is why, in addition to this virtual exhibit, Queen's University will maintain a permanent memorial in the John Deutsch University Centre in order to ensure the remembrance of these individuals for many years to come.
