To go wherever we're needed To do whatever is asked of us. A son leaves for duty, a mother weeps. Through sorrowful tears, a sister whispers goodbye, knowing she will break her promise and also leave home. She too, feels driven to serve. Across Canada, this scenario played out in countless homes as two World Wars and the Korean War stirred a great sense of humanity in the hearts of Canadians. Many felt compelled to act, to rush to the aid of the oppressed and to aid in the fight for freedom.

As soldiers, sailors and airmen headed into battle, nurses, doctors and support personnel were not far behind. Faith and hope survived the battlefield by finding refuge in the hearts of clergymen.
