Bruce County Museum and Cultural Centre is offering “A Time to Remember” to honour and thank all who have served and sacrificed for our country.
Thursday evening’s program will feature the author of “Reluctant Warriors: Canadian Conscripts and the Great War.”
Patrick Dennis, a retired Air Force colonel who trained as a fighter controller and served abroad for over 22 years, will share stories of conscripted soldiers from the Great War including soldiers from Bruce County.
Veterans can attend the event at the museum in Southampton for free on Thursday at 7 p.m., while the public will pay $14.
Dennis had tours as Canada’s Deputy Military Representative to the NATO Military Committee in Brussels, Belgium, and as the Defence Attaché to Israel. He is also a graduate of the United States Armed Forces Staff College and the NATO Defence College. After leaving the military, Patrick lectured on global political-military affairs at Wilfrid Laurier University and was a part-time instructor with the Canadian Forces College, Toronto.
