Remembering Those Forgotten

The Royal Westminster Regiment Historical Society and Museum

 

Remembrance Day serves as a time for reflection and consideration

Clint Uttley , High school coach and educator in New Westminster , is a member of the Royal Westminster Regiment Reserves

Having worked alongside veterans of all different ages, he uses Remembrance Day to reflect on those that many others forget.

“I don’t think they understand how much a family sacrifices. A kid may not see his mom or his dad for thirteen weeks or six months at a time. Say, you give thanks to a veteran, or you pay homage to a veteran…I would also thank the families.”

Uttley joined the infantry reserves four years ago.
