Inscription.

In 2000, to commemorate a century of service, Canadian Military Engineers embarked on a three-year program of assisting communities along the Trans Canada Trail to construct and restore bridges. Thirty of these bridges are shown here.

For the last century Canadian Military Engineers have been part of the nation's communities. In times of celebration, conflicts, natural disasters and national development, they have served their country and their fellow citizens well, as skilled, dedicated and devoted members of the profession-of-arms. Their three-year Centennial 2003 "Bridges for Canada" program is a continuance of this legacy, and this panel is its testimony.

Chimo!
