National Council of Veterans welcomes appointment of Fredrik Eaton as Chairman of War Museum Board - Canadian War Museum

    OTTAWA, June 26 /CNW Telbec/ - Cliff Chadderton, Chairman of the National
Council of Veteran Associations (56 member groups), released a statement today
expressing approval of Fredrik Eaton as Chairman of the Board of the Canadian
War Museum.
    "It is understood," Chadderton said, "that the departure last week of Joe
Geurts as CEO of the War Museum opens the door for a review of a controversial
panel at the War Museum which suggests that the heroic Canadians who carried
out intensive bombing of industrial facilities supporting the German war
effort were 'war criminals.'"
    Organizations representing Royal Canadian Air Force veterans and other
spokespersons for the veterans' community are reported to be working on a new
wording which Chadderton said "gives balance to the reports of the
effectiveness of Bomber Command in its campaign against Germany in World War
