Apparently ” since 1947, the Canadian Armed Forces have completed 72 international missions. More than 3,600 soldiers, sailors and Air Force personnel are deployed overseas on operational missions. On any given day, about 8,000 Canadian Armed Forces members Royal Canadian Air Force, Royal Canadian Navy, and Canadian Army (one-third of the Canadian deployable force) are preparing for, engaged in or are returning from an overseas mission.”

I never hear the Legion remembering or reflecting on Canadian Missions like Rwanda, Golan Heights, Bosnia, Afghanistan, etc. If their primary focus is on Veterans, I think they have forgotten thousands of them.
