Yellow Ribbon Classic Car is an effort to promote and obtain a
visible tribute memorial on the Highway of Heroes - Trans Canada
Highway #401 by classic car enthusiasts in conjunction with the
Port Credit Royal Canadian Legion - Col Alex Thomson Branch #82
located 35 Front Street, Mississauga Ontario.
Ideally, a bronze statue of the "Soldier's Cross" also known as
"Battle Cross". A fixed bayonet rifle struck into the ground with
the soldier's helmet atop the stock and boots at the base symbolizing
the last march to battle.
Our wish would be to place the memorial along the Highway of
Heroes, visible to passing motorists with the ability for those that
wish to stop and pay tribute to do so in a safe manner.
While the Afghan Mission has ended there is still want to procure a
monument & have hope that in the future no other of our brave
military personnel will traverse the Highway of Heroes.
We wish to thank & give respect those who have served their
country, past & present and honour those that gave the
supreme sacrifice for Canada.
Yellow Ribbon Cars were at the 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 & 2014

that "stand on guard for thee".
