Conception Bay South, Newfoundland & Labrador

Wayne Miller

Mr. Wayne Miller is a 30-year Veteran of the Canadian Armed Forces and Honorary Colonel of 37 Signals Regiment. He also served 13 years with the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary.

One of Mr. Miller’s passions is his commitment to the recognition and remembrance of Canadian and Newfoundland Veterans and service personnel. He is happy to promote, lead or advocate on behalf of Veterans in the province. He always has Canada Remembers pins in his pocket to hand out to anyone willing to promote remembrance. He has helped Veterans receive medals owed to them for their service, recommended community members for the Minister of Veterans Affairs Commendation and promoted events, such as the Portraits of Honour Tour.

Perhaps the greatest contribution to commemoration is Mr. Miller’s work as the Committee Chair for the construction of the Conception Bay South Monument of Honour. Over eight years, Mr. Miller’s tireless effort and leadership in raising community awareness, generating community support and fundraising led to the establishment of the Conception Bay South Monument of Honour. The monument was officially dedicated on October 4, 2015, and now stands in the center of the community in tribute to those who serve and have served as part of the military, police force, and fire department.

Mr. Miller has been a member of The Royal Canadian Legion for over 35 years and is a member of the Executive. He has participated in the Poppy Campaign, organized Remembrance Day services in schools, churches and service clubs, and designed and coordinated the presentation of a Junior Peacekeepers Certificate Award to youth identified by their teacher at their Remembrance Day school service.

On January 31, 2018, Mr. Miller was invested into the Order of Newfoundland and Labrador.
