April 23rd 2015 – General Meeting with James Jordan From The War Amps of Canada
James, the safety events coordinator at The War Amps of Canada, talked about the philosophy of “amputees helping amputees” and how it has been the hallmark of The War Amps since 1918, when the organization was founded by amputee war veterans returning home from the First World War. Counselling, self-help and practical assistance – along with the desire to preserve Canada’s military heritage – are common threads that have been retained in the modern-day organization that developed from their efforts.
