Colleen Fitzpatrick Awarded Memorial Silver Cross

The Royal Canadian Legion has announced local resident Colleen Fitzpatrick as the National Memorial Silver Cross Mother for 2016-2017. Fitzpatrick lost her son, Corporal Darren Fitzpatrick, when he stepped on an explosive device while on patrol near Kandahar City on March 6th, 2010. As the National Silver Cross Mother, she will place a wreath at the National War Memorial on 11 November on behalf of all Canadian mothers who have lost children in the military, either in action or in the course of their normal duty. Throughout the year, she will also be called upon to perform other duties, honouring those who have lost their lives from all different conflicts.
