Sharing remembrances and praying for peace

Wnuczek Charlie’s Cub Scout troop participated in today’s Service of Remembrance at WestminCharlie with AlexPolowinster Presbyterian Church in Westboro. Charlie met and talked with guest speaker Alex Polowin a WWII Canadian Navy veteran. Alex served on naval convoys to Northern Russia. His ship the Huron was in a group responsible for sinking or disabling 56 enemy ships during the war. Charlie was very interested in Mr. Polowin’s medals which include the French Legion of Honour (Chevalier), the Atlantic Star, the Russian Commemorative Medal and others. Alex gave a moving personal account of life on a destroyer during war time. I’m glad Charlie got to speak with a WWII veteran. We will remember them.
