Mission, Vision, Values

 

MISSION 

Our  mission is to bring our brothers and sisters in arms out from isolation in which they have put themselves in, to give them a new taste for life, and to create a healthy, trustworthy environment. Being united by our common experiences, we collectively want to save lives. 

This mission can only be achieved by gathering the members of Veterans UN-NATO Canada by means of meetings and activities. The purpose is to make new friendship and rekindle old ones. 

It is the duty of each member to promote and represent the group with a sense of pride and honour at all times. 

The group mobilizes leadership with its members. It maintains, with the cooperation of the representatives, a policy that encourages togetherness, good morale and friendship. The group also helps active or retired military members, by offering support and advice when needed. With regular activities, the group stays in contact with its members and gains trust so we may "NEVER FORGET WHO WE ARE".  

There is no membership cards and no annual fee. This group was created so members could find old friends, stay in touch and share but mostly to ensure that we never forget our fellow brothers and sisters in arms who have either been wounded or have fallen in combat during a mission.
