Today is a day that remembers the sacrifices made by aboriginal veterans in Canada Aboriginal Veterans Day is celebrated this year on November 8 in recognition of the indigenous people who fought for Canada's freedom through military service recalls the Department of Veterans Affairs of Canada (VAC) The long and proud history of service provided by Canadians from the First Nations, Métis and Inuit Accurate statistics are not easily determined, says VAC, but there has been an impressive rate of indigenous participation in Canada's military efforts throughout the country's history about 12,000 Aboriginal, Métis and Inuit have been believed to have served in 20th century military struggles in uniform “These determined volunteers were often forced to overcome the many challenges of serving in uniform, from learning a new language and adapting to cultural differences, to having to travel long distances from their remote communities only to enlist,” the VAC website reads World War I (1914-1918) More than 4,000 indigenous people served in uniform during World War I VAC pays their commitment as a "wonderful response", as one in three healthy men volunteered to serve from some areas. The head of the Lake Division in Bug was one of these communities. Every man from this area between the ages of 20 and 35 were recruited into service. The recruits joined for work, adventure and conservation. On the Tradition - Many Aboriginal Ancestors fought with the British Army in the War of 1812 and the South African War VAC says that the Aboriginal men who joined the army were skilled at patience, stealth and marksmanship and these traits were born out of a hunting life and as a result, many soldiers became residents The original are successful snipers and reconnaissance scouts, which means they have been used by stealth to secretly gather information about enemy positions Frances Pigamagabo was awarded the Military Medal with rods in recognition of his efforts during World War I Served almost for the duration of the War Edith Anderson Montor joined US Medical Corps in 1917 after leaving her job as a nurse in elementary school at a US military hospital in France, she worked tirelessly to care for wounded and dying soldiers World War II (1939-1945) World War II was not different as many indigenous people were recruited again to fight for Canada More than 100 people volunteered by March 1940 and more than 3000 First Nations had served as soldiers by the end of the war as they served An unknown number of Métis, Inuit and other uniformed Aborigines mostly served in the Canadian Army, and some became members of the Royal Canadian Navy and the Royal Canadian Air Force as in World War I, indigenous soldiers served as snipers and scouts Tommy Prince worked as a reconnaissance expert in the Devil's Brigade and demonstrated As a local farmer to fix broken communication wires while he was in sight of enemy forces as the original soldiers assumed new roles, the "blade talkers" were amputated Many broadcast messages are sensitive to Cree so that it cannot be understood if enemies intercept the message. Charles Tompkins from Alberta was one of those code spokesmen. After receiving the message, another Cree code speaker decodes the message by translating it back into English to deliver the message. Serving from the natives on honors and decorations for their bravery during the war The Distinguished Flying Cross was handed over to Willard Bolduc, an Ojibwa pilot from Ontario for his actions as an air pilot during bombing raids over Europe.The Mohawk Huron Brant from Ontario earned the Military Medal for his bravery while fighting in Sicily on the Home Front , Indigenous people donated many clothes and much food and money to causes worthy of supporting the war effort and also allowed portions of their reserves to allow the construction of new airfields, rifle squares, and defense installations. ”The special efforts of the First Nations communities in Ontario, Manitoba and British Columbia were also recognized by awarding them the British Empire Medal in appreciation. For their great contributions, “The Korean War (1950-1953) served a count Hundreds of indigenous people during the Korean War, many of whom had witnessed actions during WWII just five years ago, their return to service meant expanding their previous roles Tommy Prince returned to battle to serve with Princess Patricia, a Canadian light infantry in Korea, was the second in a rifle platoon and led A group of men to the enemy camp to seize two machine guns Prince also participated in the Battle of Gapyeong in April 1951 His battalion was honored for its distinguished service from the battle with the United States Presidential Martyrdom Unit This award was a rare honor for a non-American force Noel Knockwood was a residential school survivor. Enlisted with the Canadian Army for service during the Korean War went on to become the Sargent-at-Arms of Nova Scotia Today Indigenous men and women continue to serve with pride in Canadian military efforts today They have been deployed around the world, from working side by side with NATO through Cold War to provide peace support and work with the United Nations Native military personnel today occupy many roles, including serving as Canadian guards as activist soldiers. Extensively in the north and remote areas along Canada's eastern and western coasts Intimate knowledge of the land that Aboriginal communities hold dear is a great help to Rangers, who have to navigate and observe the coasts and hard-to-reach areas and remember monuments such as the National Veterans Memorial in India.
