Support for Afghan veterans

As the combat mission in Afghanistan transitions into other military activities, The Royal Canadian Legion would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to those service men and women, and their families, who have served with distinction and sacrificed on behalf of Canadians during these past several years.

As the combat mission in Afghanistan transitions into other military activities, The Royal Canadian Legion would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to those service men and women, and their families, who have served with distinction and sacrificed on behalf of Canadians during these past several years.  Their contribution to the well-being and care of another country’s populace is a tremendous reflection of Canada’s efforts toward maintaining global peace and we are proud of the way you have represented us.

Words are not enough to convey how grateful we are for their commitment and dedication.  As a national endeavour, I am encouraging local branches to hold appreciation events for veterans of the Afghanistan mission this coming August, in order to remember those who have fallen, thank those who have returned and to celebrate how proud you and your families have made us to be Canadian.
