Mi’kmaw brothers’ military careers continued their family legacy of service

A pair of Mi’kmaw brothers from Pabineau First Nation in New Brunswick who both served more than two decades in the Canadian Armed Forces say they took what they learned from the military into leadership roles in their community. 

The pair says their family has a long history of serving in Canada’s military so it was important for them to add to that legacy.

“I was older than him but I looked at it with pride,” said Richardson, 73.  Full story here.
