It is our honour to curate the veteran stories featured in our Juno75 project…

and now we want to hear from you!

The Canadian Army during the Second World War was largely composed of civilian soldiers – seemingly ordinary Canadians who contributed overseas or on the home front in a variety of roles and for a number of reasons. Our Juno Stories focus on 21 individuals with diverse backgrounds and experiences. After all, if we know anything about Canada both then and now, it’s that we are nothing if not diverse. Their stories, and now your stories, will help us continue to record and share the history of Canada, and the moments that define us. Do you know someone whose story deserves to be told? Read on!

Stories that are submitted below will become part of our collective history and will be published on our News page. From time to time we may choose a story of interest to follow up on and feature more prominently on the page. We would like to thank everyone for taking the time to compose and share their stories.

Don’t know where to start?

Here are seven sentences that will help you structure your story if you get stuck.

  • At the Beginning…
  • A Day in the Life…
  • And Then One Day…
  • Because of This…
  • Not Only, But Also…
  • Moment of Truth…
  • And Ever Since That Day…
