"We the undersigned feel enormous gratitude for the sacrifice made by all the Canadian Armed Forces through the ages in defence of this country and its values; acknowledge the very special nature of the sacrifice made by those who fought in the First World War in appalling conditions and with terrible loss of life; note that only three First World War veterans remain; and urge the Prime Minister that their sacrifice, and all of those they served with under arms from 1914-1918, be celebrated by offering a state funeral to the family of the last veteran of the First World War resident in Canada."

Willioam R, Fortune Oakville ON My Grandfather served in both WW1 and WW2...he lied about his age both times. They don't mint them like that any more and we should not only honour the last man as a symbol of those that died in the Great War, but also as a passing breed to contemplate.
 
Mary (Walls) Culham Calgary AB This would be a deserved acknowledgement and timely tribute to the courage and debt we owe to so many who came before us. My father, Wilson (Jack) C.J.

We will only have one chance to do something special f

Richard Atkinson Napanee ON In addition I feel that all members of the forces who have served in major conflicts and have reached the age of 100 years should receive special recognition and a state paid for funeral.
