 PASSING OF Thurston Kaulbach, Tud 

Thurston passed away early this week. He had been ill for some time and undergoing treatments.  The only information regarding a funeral the family are looking at Saturday, December 7th. That has not been finalized

 Tud was always supportive and encouraging in his communications with everyone.

 His military service; his family: his interests: his travels: his contribution to veterans serving as a Director of NVOC; his character and “gentlemanliness” [he really was an Officer and a Gentleman]

Tud will be truly missed as a NVOC team member and for his sage advice

Tud thank for your many years of service to Queen and country.

Subject: Remembrance Day at Ogden Yard

Canadian Pacific held their annual Remembrance Day ceremony at the Veteran’s Memorial Monument at Ogden Yard in Calgary on 11 Nov 2019. Well attended, probably 500 people in attendance. They then unveiled their five tribute locomotives adjacent to the Royal Canadian Pacific Pavilion; on a curved track in brilliant sunlight. I must commend the CPR and their staff for this tribute to service men and women in previous wars, many of whom did not return from foreign battlefields, and those serving today. They then gave a light lunch inside the pavilion, where the steam engine is on display. All in all, very well done!

 

The five SD70ACu’s are:

 

CP 7020- in NATO Green with black markings, representing army vehicles in temperate regions

CP 7021- in Desert Sand with black markings, representing army vehicles used in Iraq and Afghanistan

CP 7022- in Royal Canadian Navy Shipside Grey and Oxide Red, representing military ships

CP 7023- in a 2-tone ‘sky camouflage’ pattern of Light Ghost Grey and Medium Grey; the colours used on today’s CF-18 fighter jets

CP 6644- a memorial to the troops who fought at D-Day, 06 June 1944, as they invaded fortress Europe, painted in RAF Dark Green and RAF Ocean Grey, the camouflage colours used on WWII Spitfire aircraft. Black and white ‘invasion stripes’ as used on Allied aircraft on D-Day adorn the rear of the locomotive.

 

All of the locomotives, except for CP 6644, have the Canadian Flag on the engineer's side and the American Flag on the conductor’s side, honouring the Armed Forces of both countries and recognizing that the CPR operates in both countries.

 

The five units will be placed in regular revenue freight service.

 

Last five photos are of the placards inside the RCP Pavilion on 11 Nov 2019.

Dear NATO Veterans Organization of Canada,

My name is Joon Sohn and I am from student-led organization Hold High the
Torch at École Salish Secondary. We are hosting a *Veterans Appreciation
Luncheon ‪on Saturday May 11, 2019, 11:00am - 2:00pm at École Salish
Secondary (7278 184 St, Surrey, BC V4N 5V2). *

We want to honour our local veterans, active-duty military personnel and
their spouses/caretakers by treating them to a complimentary lunch with
great food, activities, prizes, and live entertainment provided by Pat
Chessell. The Keynote Speaker will be The Honourable Yonah Martin, Senator
from BC. It is a grateful opportunity for Surrey/Langley residents to show
our appreciation for those who served our nation and fought for our
freedoms. Attached is an invite flyer.

*We are asking for your help to promote this event among local veterans who
are associated with NATO Veterans Organization of Canada. We understand
many of our older veterans aren’t online, so if you could simply provide us
