Veterans sought for French, Korean honours

Port Moody man will help families and veterans apply for national recognition awards

A Port Moody man is continuing his efforts to ensure Korean and Second World War vets get the medals they deserve.

Guy Black is once again putting out the call for families of veterans to contact him if their loved one participated in the Korean War and its peacekeeping operations between 1950 and ’55 or if their WWII veteran family member helped liberate France between June 6 and Aug. 4, 1944.

The government of France honours Canadian vets with the National Order of the Legion of Honour and the Republic of Canada is offering the Ambassador for Peace medal.

Some local veterans have already been presented with these honours, including Port Coquitlam resident Harold Blanes and Coquitlam resident Bill Berrow.
