Honourary Lieutenant General of the Canadian Armed Forces, Richard Rohmer, one of Canada’s most decorated citizens, sat down with True North for a wide ranging discussion about his role in World World 2 as a fighter-reconnaissance pilot and his general thoughts on Canada.
By the age of 21, Rohmer had flown over 135 successful missions in the war, playing a key role in forcing the German surrender at Holland and flying missions on D-Day. For his service in the skies, he was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross. At war’s end, Rohmer returned to Canada and continued his life long service to our country.
A politician, a writer of best selling novels and biographies, a lawyer and a passionate advocate for Canadian veterans, Rohmer has never stopped serving the people of Canada.
