Sept 04, 2012 Old Warriors gather at Canadian National Exhibition in Toronto

The Canadian National Exhibition has now closed but we wanted to show you these photographs taken by veteran Charles Kim, although Charles seems to be in all of them and must have pressed some other photographer into duty.

Charles, a Korean War veteran who is a retired major from the ROK Army, has participated in the CNE’s Warrior’s Day parade each year for the past 41 years!

Charles also served in Vietnam with the ROK army and is a member of the Heritage Unit of the Korea Veterans Association of Canada. He reports spotting KVA Canada national vice president Doug Finney in the parade, along with Bert Picotte from the Oshawa area and Sam Carr, a well known veteran of the Royal Canadian Regiment, who hails from London.

In making his report Charles says this may be his last year in a Warrior’s Day Parade, but doesn’t rule out 2013.
