A Medal For Children of the fallen sign now

"We lost Cpl. Thomas James Hamilton to a roadside bomb on December 13th, 2008. He left behind a 4 year old little girl with Autism--Annabelle. Unfortunately, Thomas' paperwork had not been updated since 2007 and as a result was nothing being left for his daughter to cherish his memory besides things that were left around the house his memorial cross list was also not updated. So far, there is nothing that is solely designated for children of fallen soldiers and I have been unable to help her receive a memorial cross as well as other mementos that are given out by DND such as the Canadian Comfort & Remembrance Project which is designated solely for a spouse and a mother. I am proposing that changes be made by DND or VAC so that all children of fallen soldiers receive a memorial cross automatically or something that is equivalent""
From Heather L Peace

By signing the above petition you are asking the government to change the regulations for the Memorial Cross, or create a separate medal for children of soldiers, sailors and aircrew killed overseas in the service of their country. And it should be awarded automatically.

    I think our children get forgotten about too easily when it comes to this stuff. It doesn't matter what the circumstances are, every child of a fallen soldier DESERVES to have a momento, a medal to show they lost their parent for a cause...they don't have

    I can't believe this is even an issue. These families go through so much already, yet here we are. Sad.
