And in this grand achievement Ukrainian Catholic servicemen and women of Grimsby and vicinity are embodied. They number over forty. They are: Olga Andreychuk, Walter Christian, Edward Cyprik, Leslie Disik, Michael Duryshyn, Bill Fillimchuk, Michael Fillimchuk, Peter Fedor, William Fedor, Frank A. Goutowski, Walter Halinski, George Hareychuk, William Hareychuk, Myron Kalinovich, Norman Komariansky, Elsie Kowbliuk, Nicholas Kowbliuk, Mike Kulmatycky, Walter Kusy, Alec Laba, Matthew Laba, Michael W. Laba, Michael J. Laba, Walter Laba, Dmetro Labiuk, Bill Labiuk, Edward Maryniuk, Neil Maryniuk, Harry Miller, Steve Podubinsky, Walter Prybitka, Bill Romak, Dmetro Romak, Peter Rushak, William C.
