World War II Veteran visits St. Mary

Mr. Clark spoke to the students about his experiences during World War II

November 5, 2010 - St. Mary was very fortunate to have Mr. Tom Clark, an 85 year old War Veteran who currently lives in Capreol, and who is a member of the Capreol Legion, come speak to the students in grades 3 to 6, to give a personal perspective to the meaning of Remembrance Day. Mr. Clark joined the Navy in 1943 and sailed on the HMCS Kirkland Lake during the second World War. He spoke of his experiences and also gave a bit of the history of the Battle of the St. Lawrence. He explained the meaning of the medals he wore, spoke of the different friendships he had during the War, shared personal photos and talked about the differences in the Military now and at that time. Mr. Clark will be part of the St. Mary Remembrance Day Services as he and other members of the Capreol Legion will join the staff and students on November 11th.
