Please note Tommy is not the most decorated aboriginal soldier in Canada. We can maybe safely say the most decorated aboriginal soldier in Manitoba but not Canada.

Sgt Tommy Prince MM
Sgt. Tommy Prince was ONE of Canada's most decorated Aboriginal war heroes, serving in World War II and the Korea War. Therefore, it was only fitting that we named the newest Korea Veterans Association after him. This new Association will be called Sgt Tommy Prince, MM Korea Veterans Memorial Unit 76, Winnipeg.

These flags were obtained through donations and the sales of clocks by members of the Korea Veterans Associations of Canada and we thank them for helping us out. The unit meets once a month, usually at lunch time on the last Wednesday of the month at #4 Royal Canadian Legion, 1755 Portage Ave. There is no dress code for meetings and they are usually informal. If you know a Korea Veteran who may want to join the association it is never too late. You can drop into #4 RCL and they will pass on an application form to you.

To Our Readers
There are still many veterans from the Korea War that have not bothered joining any associations related to Veterans. Although we are all getting on in age we encourage you to take out membership in your local Legion or Korea Veterans Associations. There is also a life time membership offered in the General Rockingham Unit of the Korea Veterans Association. It offers membership to those that may be out of town or just not living in a area where there is a KVA Unit. It should also be said that you can belong to any unit in any Province in Canada without being a resident of that Province. You may have friends in a unit and it is your right if you so desire to belong to that unit although you may never take part in their functions. As long as you are willing to pay your membership that will be your unit. For more info on the Korea Veteran Association to contact Norm
