Mark’s March

In 2012 Mark Steele, Zone Commander North Shore Howe Sound, was selected as the official Legion representative on the Canadian Forces (CF) Nijmegen March Team! The 93rd annual Nijmegen March was held Holland July 17th – 20th.

Only one representative is selected nation-wide, and Mark received the honor to train and travel as part of the CF team. The CF Nijmegen March Team has been sponsored by The Royal Canadian Legion since 2000. This was an exciting, once in a life-time experience that he was pleased to share with you!
