The Greater Victoria Afghanistan Memorial Project (GVAMP) Society has completed its task of designing, fundraising and creating a memorial in honour of those who served, were injured, and died in the Afghanistan conflict and their families. The memorial will be unveiled in Victoria during a commemoration ceremony on Saturday 30 September 2017. VETERAN PARTICIPATION Engaging and paying tribute to veterans of the Afghanistan conflict will be an important element of the dedication ceremony. Veterans (Afghan/Old Guard) are invited to join the parade on the 30 September 2017 for review by Her Honour, The Honourable Judith Guichon, Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia. REACHING OUT Your participation is important. The Facebook page below has been created to invite as many Afghanistan Veterans as possible to participate in the event.
