Lennard Morin is the well-known Regional Director for Métis Nation-Saskatchewan Eastern Region I whose tireless efforts led to the establishment of the Métis Veterans Memorial Monument. The Monument was unveiled to the public at the Batoche Memorial Garden on July 19, 2014 and commemorates the Métis Nation veterans who served our country during the Boer War, World War I , World War II and the Korean War. The site draws many relatives and descendants of Métis Nation veterans, all eager to locate their family hero among the thousands of names inscribed on the monument.

On April 7, 2017, it was Morin himself searching names on the close to 3,000 graves in the Bretteville-sur-Laize Canadian War Cemetery in Normandy France. He was searching for his uncle, Napoleon Morin, who died days after the landing of Canadian troops at Juno Beach on June 6, 1944. See his amazing search and discovery in the video.
