REMEMBERING THE ARMENIAN-CANADIAN SOLDIERS OF THE WORLD WARS

November 11, 2015

Today, we mark Remembrance Day and the end of the hostilities of
the First World War. It was under the cover of World War I that the
Armenian Genocide was undertaken in 1915. It was in the midst of the
fighting that the Republic of Armenia declared its independence in
1918. It was the consequent peace process that vested the United
States as arbitrator for the new republic's border with Turkey,
which was decided by President Woodrow Wilson.

Often overlooked, however, is the contribution that Armenian-Canadians
played in the Canadian Armed Forces during both the first and second
world wars. Today, as we honour all those who put their life on the
line to defend our freedom, let us also remember:

Andrew Artinian, Charles Artinian, Dikran Artinian, Herman Aram
Asadourian, George Asadourian, Reggie Avedisian, Andrew Antranig
Chichakian, Samuel Chichakian, Richard Essraelian, Sarkis Halagian,
Richard Hoogasian, George Kalagian, Nigoghos Kalagian, Susan Kalagian,
Shoghomon Koloian, Edward Krekorian, Arthur Ashod Kuderian, John
Magarian, Levon Magarian, Kirk Matosian, Michael Minoian, Avak
Moligian, Arthur Avedis Mooradian, John Moukperian, George Sahakian,
Paul Solomonian, Hagop Torosian, Harry Torosian, Hygus Torosian,
and William Zampigian.
