Today With her extensive background in leadership, organization, personnel management and supervision, Dee established her own business, Unlimited Horizons.

Reception - Canadian War Museum
An entirely new and must-see attraction, this national museum presents Canada’s military past and how it shaped the country. Its outstanding exhibitions explain Canada s rich military history from earliest times to the present, featuring the experiences of people on the battlefields and at home.

 

 

The Museum’s dramatic architecture is a showcase for its vast art collection (some 13,000 pieces) and its extensive artifact collection, including military vehicles and artillery. The extensive permanent exhibition highlights key events and defining moments in Canada’s military history. Human conflict is explored through personal stories, art, artifacts, photographs and interactive presentations. The panoramic LeBreton Gallery houses a Voodoo jet, nineteenth-century artillery pieces, tanks and a wide range of vehicles.

 

Memorial Hall is designed for rest and reflection, and contains a single lone artifact: the headstone of the Unknown Soldier from the First World War which is directly illuminated by the sun each Remembrance Day, November 11, at 11 a.m.

 

With its spectacular location beside the Ottawa River and its stunning architectural design, innovative exhibitions and public programs, the Canadian War Museum is a military history museum of international stature.
