Do you know know of any WWII Métis Veterans 

 

When we first started this journey looking for all our WWII veterans we knew of 3 living and one that had recently passed on. With your help and outreach we are now looking at awards to 10 living WWII Métis Veterans and two that have recently passed. I thank you very much for your help in identifying these veterans and their families. Please if you have any questions I am more than willing to answer all.
