Ottawa: On Mar 11, Canadian mission to Afghanistan was formerly wrapped up. The flag was lowered down and will be home with last contingent of army personal on Mar 18.
12 years ago in 2001, Canada had deployed its largest military contingent to the region. Over these 12 years, 40,000 army personal were deployed of which 158 soldiers died fighting. On this occasion, Prime Minister said, “Their courage and dedication has brought much pride to our country. I look forward to personally welcoming home the last contingent of Canada’s brave men and women of the Canadian Armed Forces when they return home on the final flight from Afghanistan on March 18. I also look forward at that time to announcing details of Canada’s plans to formally commemorate the mission in Afghanistan. Canada will continue to play an important role in supporting efforts that contribute to building a better future for all Afghans.”
