The Last Post Fund is a non-profit currently searching for the military records of several veterans buried in Mount Pleasant Burial Park in Swift Current. 

Mount Pleasant is home to around 22 unmarked or temporarily marked graves, most of those being located in the Field of Honour.

Brad Hrycyna, a volunteer researcher with the Last Post Fund and retired Major, has been able to apply for many of the veterans to receive permanent markers as part of the Unmarked Grave Program.

"They qualify for a permanent headstone but only if I can prove they're veterans through their nation's military records and that they lived in Canada for 10 years prior to their death," said Hrycyna. "Those records are almost impossible to come by."

There are a few men who have been challenged so far to prove as veterans of the Canadian or Allied Nations; Robert J. Brown (1869 - 1924), Oliver Emanuel Hobert (1879 - 1913), Thomas C. Johnson (1886 - 1929), Arthur Leason Webb (1900 - 1924), and Thomas Rowe Wilson (1877 - 1961).

Hrycyna notes his success in fast-tracking Rfn. Denniel for a permanent marker that will be unveiled on May 17 at 2 p.m. at Mount Pleasant. 

"These are veterans, these are people who fought in the service of Canada," he added. "They deserve to be recognized with a proper headstone."
