CORNWALL, Ontario – With the release of the war film, 1917, the Cornwall based Red Ribbon Forces campaign was at the local premier to show support for veterans. Brian Goodfellow, who has been volunteering his time with the Red Ribbon Forces campaign for over a decade, was more than happy to be on the scene for a film which ties in well with his organization’s mission. 

“We’ve been doing it for 12 years. We’re not as active as we used to be, but we’re still supporting the troops. With the help of people like at Galaxy [Cinema] we continue to do things to show support,” said Goodfellow. “We’ve also had support from two Governor Generals and a Defence Minister.”

“Any support that will help us continue the Red Ribbon Forces is much appreciated,” said Goodfellow. 

The Red Ribbon Forces campaign is a local organization that has frequently provided extra support and services for veterans in Cornwall and SDG.
