Royal Roads Audio Visual Technician and West Shore Community Band Director Mike Dominy was interviewed by Rick Stiebel of the Goldstream News Gazette about his involvement in Remembrance Day ceremonies and the significance of the day to him personally.
Here is an excerpt:
“It’s a time to reflect on family and commitment,” he said.
His grandfather served during the First World War, somehow surviving a bullet in the chest during one battle and a gas attack during another. His uncle, now deceased, served in the British Parachute Regiment in the Second World War.
“I only found that out recently,” Dominy said. “Like most veterans, he was very reticent about what he did. For me, Remembrance Day is an opportunity to reflect and honour those who paid the ultimate sacrifice.”
