LegionConnect is a social platform designed strictly for the Canadian military Veteran, both retired and serving.
The history of the military in Canada is one of success and sacrifice. Throughout our relatively short history we have served with honour and distinction asking little but devoting everything to the preservation of Canada and our way of life. Whether serving or retired, the bonds that have tied us together were formed in training and fortified in the service of this great country. From Vimy Ridge to Kandahar we are one and the connections that remain join us forever in a world we have chosen and remain firmly entrenched in.
Today there are estimated to be in excess of 700,000 serving and retired Canadian military personnel spread throughout Canada. Although large in numbers the physical dispersion is as great as the country we live in. In this dispersion, the voice of the Veteran is lost. Speaking strictly in principles we are all familiar with, as a distinct and identifiable body, we lack the ability to speak and act as a unified voice and are therefore unable to project the influence worthy of our size.
The Royal Canadian Legion, in concert with Atomic Motion, has taken the first steps in creating a unified Veterans voice – LegionConnect. LegionConnect is a social platform designed strictly for the Canadian military Veteran, both retired and serving. It will provide the basis for social interaction, a forum for discussion of relative subjects and the ability through electronic polling to voice the concerns of all Veterans in a simplified and expedient manner. These are the tools of our times and The Royal Canadian Legion wants to provide all Veterans the opportunity to engage.
To begin the process go to www.legionconnect.legion.ca and sign up. There are no fees and no commitment on your part other than adding your voice to the nominal roll. Select your units, populate your page, engage in relative discussion and participate in actively promoting the information and issues important to you. This is a site exclusively for Canadian military Veterans and it is the Legion’s offering to you for the recognition you deserve.
