FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Sometimes dreams do come true. Sometimes solemn promises are kept. The National Wall of Remembrance Association (NWORA) is pleased to announce that our vision of establishing a National Monument to honour all of Canada’s fallen is about to come true.   Our promise of a groundbreaking ceremony by Remembrance Day 2011 will be kept. After considering several Kingston locations over the past year, and receiving the support of the local military community, the Association has decided that the National Wall of Remembrance will be located at the Military Communications and Electronics Museum, on the grounds of Canadian Forces Base Kingston.

This self-funding project will create a single place of remembrance for all of Canada's fallen heroes - a facility that families, friends and the people of Canada will want to visit.  The National Wall of Remembrance will honour those who gave the ultimate sacrifice, in all conflicts of record, starting with the earliest. It will not, however, seek to replace local cenotaphs and memorials as a sacred place.

Using the latest technology, the installation portion will be of particular interest to schools.  This tribute will have two components: a series of panels portraying the various conflicts and a digital wall with a search function.  A screen presentation of the name of each fallen hero together with biographies, photos and clippings will be augmented, from time to time, as new material comes to light. Remembrance, the official publication of the Association, will be distributed across the country and will focus on Canada’s engagement in various conflicts. Remembrance will also include reviews, memoirs, stories, verse and memorials to those who served or fell for Canada.

A panel of mainly-retired, senior military officers with a combined 400 years of service to Canada has stepped forward to form an advisory board in support of the project.  The partnership between the NWORA and the Military Communications and Electronics Museum will present Canada with a gift to last.
