Remembrance Day campaign features Garage Living family member
To Aaron Cash, managing partner of Garage Living, his 95-year old grandfather has always been his own personal hero.
Now, Norman Cash a veteran who served in World War II will be recognized across Canada as he is featured in a touching Remembrance Day tribute on television and online.
Bell Canada has created a moving, evocative campaign about Canada’s war veterans simply called, “Poppy”. It’s a wordless, yet rich story that features a young girl’s intrigue and a proud and humble Norman.
Aaron says, “I know Bell wanted to shed light on the importance of remembering our veterans past and present. I am not sure that they realized how much honor it would bring to my Grandpa to represent the increasingly few WWII vets still alive or healthy enough to be part of the Remembrance Day ceremonies.”
Norman Cash’s steadfast contribution to our freedom today was achieved when he served with the 12th Field Regiment, Royal Canadian Artillery. They landed at Normandy with the 3rd Canadian Infantry Division just after D-Day. Cash helped liberate France, Belgium, and Holland, also freeing concentration camp survivors.
Aaron added with pride, “If I am lucky, I will look as good as he does with as much hair when I am 95! Thank you grandpa for your courage and sacrifice. We love you!”
