Chimo! CMEA Last Post entries
CMEA
The CMEA has been putting Last Post entries on our website since 2001. The vast majority of these entries have come from the efforts of a few dedicated people led by Ken Holmes. Most entries begin with a newspaper obituary brought to our attention, or from information sent to us from a friend or family member. Our aim is to post entries that reflect the service record of members of the CME Family, and unfortunately, most newspaper obituaries do not provide the detail we would like to have.

Reserve veterans to get same access to benefits as full-time Forces veterans
Toronto Star
The killing of a soldier as he stood guard at the National War Memorial spurred the federal government to fill a gap in the benefit program for reservists who are injured during military service, putting the part-timers on equal financial terms with regular members of the Canadian Armed Forces. The change means the minimum benefit to cover lost earnings for reservists almost doubles from $24,300 to more than $42,000 a year.

On the land, U.S. Army engineers built a town — given the innocuous name of Oak Ridge — according to a master plan by the architectural firm Skidmore, Owings and Merrill.
