Led by General (Ret.) Rick Hillier and produced in partnership with the Vimy Foundation and Young Presidents’ Organization, 2012 marked the second year in a row TPL took Canadian business leaders to tour Canada’s First and Second World War battle sites and cemeteries in northern France, to educate them on the historic sacrifices of our military families. The tour culminated in an emotional D-Day memorial service for our fallen at Juno Beach on June 6th.
This annual initiative helps us to fulfill our mission of bridging the military and civilian worlds by educating Canadians about our rich military history, allowing them to gain a better appreciation for the sacrifices of today’s men and women in uniform.
