THE LONG SHOCK OF WAR
The reverberations of war continue long after the last shell or bullet is fired. They roll outward—like waves from a blast—through one generation to the next. Legion Magazine Editor Dan Black describes what it was like to retrace the life of his grandfather who served and was terribly wounded in the First World War. It is a story that is emblematic of the way men and women move on from war, and how all of us are touched by their experience.

News Editor Tom MacGregor describes his recent journey to South Korea where Canadian veterans commemorated the service and sacrifice of comrades lost in a war that ended with an uneasy ceasefire.
