A somber grey granite memorial stands in St John's Park in Winnipeg's North End, memorializing the sacrifices of the dead and bravery of the survivors in the membership of the Gen. Sam Steele Royal Canadian Legion Branch 117 who served in WWI, WWII and the Korean War.

The text of the memorial reads as follows:

In grateful tribute
to the men of the
Gen Sir Sam Steele Legion
Branch 117
Royal Canadian Legion
Who laid down their lives
in two World Wars
and in everlasting gratitude
to those who,
daring to die,
survived

Blasterz LOVE this memorial. The words are so simple, and so powerful. We especially love the respect given to the survivors -- those men who dared to die, but who survived. Wow.
