Canada in Afghanistan

The Canadian flag was lowered for the last time in Afghanistan on March 12, 2014. This mission involved the deployment of over 40,000 Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) personnel—the largest deployment since the Second World War. To remember the efforts of those who served, a number of special commemorative events will be held including a National Day of Honour (#DayofHonour) on May 9, 2014.
