Remembrance, Careers, Military History
Harold E. Wright served as a Reserve Officer and also a Cadet Instructor in the 1970s and early 1980s. He has also worked as an historian in Saint John, N.B. for close to 40 years. His earliest memories of veterans are two Boer War vets who he met when he was 10. Over the past 40 years, he has done extensive research on veterans and their stories, and Remembrance Days and their significance. He now mentors young students (10-13 years old) who accompany him to some events and they speak on what Remembrance means to their generation. He has passed the torch to the next generation. He was recently awarded the Minister of Veterans Affairs Commendation. Harold always uses images, military newsreels and artifacts in his presentations. He can often tailor his presentation for your specific group. Topics: New Brunswickers from the Boer War to the Korean War. Remembrance Days of the past and their significance.
