The New Canadian Victoria Cross



The Victoria Cross is awarded for “the most conspicuous bravery, a daring or pre-eminent act of valour or self-sacrifice or extreme devotion to duty, in the presence of the enemy." It is the highest honor Canada can bestow upon a member of it's armed forces. May we eventually no longer need to have them, but for now may few be awarded posthumously.
