The local branch of the Korea Veterans' Association commemorated the 94th birthday of Comox resident Frank Grant last week at the Comox Legion.
Frank was born in 1919 and joined the navy in 1938 when he was 19.
During the Second World War he served on at least a dozen
ships. He married a girl from Victoria in 1943 and together they
raised four children, two of whom live in Victoria and two in the Comox Valley.
His wife has passed away and Frank now lives alone in the Valley.
Grant served faithfully in the navy during the Korean War and continues to attend all the meetings of the KVA. He is a patriot and great example to his fellow veterans.
2013 has been declared the year of the Korea veteran.
