We spent five years spent trying to elicit stories and photos from those who served Canada, in one capacity or another, in Afghanistan between 2001 and 2014. DND didn’t support the project so we had difficulty getting the word out through official channels and assuring folks that it was OK to share their experience. Sadly, as a result, many stories were missed.
If you have a story and photo to share, send it along. Details are at the Submissions Page.
Submissions still require a service number, full name, unit, and contact info for validation purposes. We also encourage those who served to monitor stories that are posted to help us flag and delete fraudulent submissions. Miraculously there was only one story that eluded detection in the final publication.
