New permanent Afghanistan mission monument to be installed at new courthouse playground

From CTV News Vancouver Island:

The Greater Victoria Afghanistan Memorial lists the names of 163 men and women who made the supreme sacrifice during the mission, but is also meant as a tribute to those who made it back home.

The image on the monument was inspired by a photo taken by Reuters photographer Finbarr O’Reilly in 2007. It shows a Canadian soldier holding the hand of an Afghan child.
