MRU Library Hosts Gallery that Honours Soldiers and Military Families

War In Pieces is a growing collection of stories that have been donated by members of our Canadian Armed Forces, veterans, and their families. Each story is told in first person and presented with a memento that symbolizes it. The purpose is to provide the public with an intimate glimpse of life through the eyes of our service men and women, and their families.

“Our exhibit reveals the challenges and rewards of military life. We provide visitors with an intimate glimpse into lives of commitment, sacrifice, and heroism with stories told in first-person by our military men and women. We personalize those who wear the uniform, and we help Canadians recognize and appreciate their sacrifices,” says Melanie Timmons, Executive Director of the War Stories Society.

The stories and mementos are exhibited in a physical traveling popup gallery and in the virtual gallery on

MRU Library is proud to host the upcoming War In Pieces pop-up in the Ideas Lounge from November 7 and 8 from 9:00am-4:30pm on each day. We encourage everyone on campus to stop by to experience this meaningful exhibit. Please share this widely and invite students, colleagues, and include in department newsletters if applicable.
