Cloverdale's John Lowe

Cloverdale Wounded Warrior, 27-year-old John Lowe, one of five young international war veterans, was a guest on Rocky Mountaineer’s inaugural “Life Changing Train for Heroes” which departed Vancouver on Oct. 1.

Escorted by an RCMP honour guard and full fanfare, Lowe, his mom Shere Lowe, grandmother Doris Fraser, and friend Joe McCarthy, joined fellow Australian and U.K Afghanistan vets and families for a terrain sharply contrasting to their military service.

Shere Lowe credits Wounded Warriors Canada for their unfailing supporting of John’s recovery.
