That’s the title of a PowerPoint presentation I made to the University Women’s Club of Vancouver on April 13th this year. It was a fascinating event, with attendees that included members of the club, friends and family, Canadian army veterans, and a man born Korean during the war who is now a Canadian. Also present to my delight were family members of a veteran of the Battle of Kapyong.
I would like to think that there in spirit were a Korean veteran and friend who had just passed away, and another veteran who is still very much with us but unable to access a computer to attend the live Zoom event. He has since received a video of the presentation; no doubt I’ll hear one of these days what he thought of it!
