A religious figure in Winkler says it's important to be a part of Remembrance Day.

Bunker Executive Director Rob Haslam conducted the religious portion of the Remembrance Day ceremony today in Winkler.

Both his grandfathers served for England during World War II and his father was also in the military.

Haslam says Remembrance Day is significant for everyone.

He says whether you agree with war or not Remembrance Day is about honouring the message of "never again" and to seek peace.

Haslam says while his children are too young to understand the significance of today, he desires to tell stories of his grandfathers and why they did what they did.
