New infrastructure at Canadian Forces Station St. John's
Government of Canada
Built during World War II, the American Base at Pleasantville was closed during the early 1960s and its ownership was transferred to the Canadian federal and provincial governments. Public Works and Government Services became the custodian of the land and numerous buildings housing various federal government departments. Eventually, Canadian Forces units were relocated to the area and, in 1967, Canadian Forces Station St. John's was officially established at Pleasantville.

The Canadian Armed Forces in Afghanistan
National Defence
The terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 seem only a short time ago. Those brutal and unprovoked strikes killed nearly 3,000 innocent people, including 24 Canadians. They could not go unchallenged without risking future attacks and harm to more Canadians. In the last 12 years, more than 40,000 Canadian Armed Forces members participated in efforts to combat terrorism, stabilize the country and rebuild Afghanistan's capacity to provide for its own security.

Think Defence
As the fine readers of Think Defence know, bridges are a particular interest here at TD Towers. One of the precursors to the famous Bailey Bridge was the much less famous Inglis Bridge, designed by Charles Edward Inglis. There are only a couple in existence in the U.K., a rather sad state of affairs for such an important piece of military heritage, one in Wales over the River Monnow and one over the Basingstoke Canal.

The Guelph Cenotaph: Names of the fallen from the First World War
Orangeville.com
The following list was assembled through information found in The C.E.F. Roll of Honour, compiled and edited by Edward H. Wigney; and the Library and Archives Canada website, "Soldiers of the First World War."
