CPVA - the Canadian Peacekeeping Veteran Association, which represents about 150.000 UN-Veterans in Canada, held in May 1988 a very special medal presentation, which the administrative Officer for the CPVW Mr. William Willbond has written something about:

"At 1000 hrs 15 May 1998 the Executive Officers of the Canadian Peacekeeping Veterans Association were presented with these prestigious commemorative medals at Government House by Her Majesty’s Representative," His Excellancy Lieutenant Govenor Garde Gardom". Our Executive Officers’ highly recommend the acquisition of these medals for our rank and file members because:

A. They still ain’t hireing too many machine gunners on civie street and B. If the Peacekeeping Veteran has the Nobel Peace Prize Certificate (signed by the Minister of Defence for Norway) attached to his resume, then perhaps it will give him or her a "foot in the door" when seeking employment on civie street."

The attached photograph was taken at Government House just after the prestigious presentaion ceremony, which was attended by local dignitaries,the President of Norway House, the President of the UN Association and close family members,
