For Those Who Serve. A Journey Through Keith Miller's Campaign April 1918  - November 1918

By John Cantor

Some of my closest friends served in the militaries around the world.  Whether slightly or heavily they suffer PTSD and this impacts not only their lives but also friends family and community. Raising funds to support PTSD service men and women, for my generation, is a service to them. My cousin Keith served in WW1.  I inherited his diaries and a flag he carried through his campaign from March 1918 to November 1918. The flag details each place and village he  visited and sometimes fought through after leaving Sydney. What he wrote in his pocket book while fighting is remarkable. He re wrote this in 1921 and again in 1967 reliving the events. My colleague Phillip Legare USMC Master Sergeant retired will accompany me to Villers - Bretenoux to re-visit Keith's war tour and attend the memorial ceremony. We will be in the crowd on the 11th of the 11th 2018. Keith died in 1997. After his effort in WW1 he did not again serve again in WW2. I feel he would want his experience, and the record of such valued and this should support others who serve.  Many are PTSD sufferers, and both Phillip and I feel Keith's records were a cathartic way he dealt with this issue. Your donation will go direct  to Soldier On and we will follow up and report on how its spent.
