Cowansville Legion member Arnold Raymond led a team of volunteers over the past weeks in a special task of remembrance. Inspired by Raymond’s decision to fashion a homemade “veteran” marker for his grandfather’s non-military grave earlier this year, the team assembled and installed 200 similar markers on “unrecognized” veterans graves across Brome-Missisquoi. “It’s sad that so many veterans’ graves are not identified,” the Legion member said, arguing that more work should be done by the government to recognize and honour those soldiers who served in various conflicts over time.
