Condolences & Memories (1 entries)

  • Mr. Friesen's tireless efforts, to have the Canadian Armed Forces recognize the long term health effects of mustard gas testing carried out on our soldiers in Europe during the war, brought great relief to my mother and to the many others who watched their spouses wither away. I was 17 when my father died of Multiple Myeloma, and it was close to 20 years before I learned of the cause, and received some compensation from Veterans' Affairs. Without Mr. Friesen's efforts the story might never have been known. I will remember him. - Posted by: Thor Thorleifson (Beneficiary) on: Oct 30, 2018
