A Barrie man was among those honoured at a recent Veterans Affairs celebration.
The Minister of Veterans Affairs honored Robert George for service to veterans.
George was a 20 year member of the Canadian Armed Services.
Since retirement he encouraged Home Depot in Barrie, and Home Hardware in Angus, to donate building material and sandbags to construct three symbolic guard posts for Peacekeepers Park in Angus.
He is also a member of the Memory Project, to educate students on the role of Canadian peacekeepers.
