Today I was privileged to cover the unveiling and dedication of the first Canadian memorial to the war in Afghanistan. A VERY moving ceremony.... 1. The massed pipes and drums: The Royal Canadian Air Force Pipes & Drums, The Canadian Scottish Regiment, and the Victoria Police Department march on. 2. 3. Company Sergent-Major Goodbody, Canadian Scottish. He might not be a large chap, but I'm pretty sure I wouldn't make an disparaging comments about his skirt! 4. Placing a poppy.... 5. Soldiers of the Canadian Scottish and Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry pay their respects 6. The memorial 7. Her Honour, Judith Guichon, Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia inspects the guard of Afghanistan Veterans 8. If you've never seen a real hero, here's one: Captain Trevor Greene, talking to Her Excellency, Shinkai Karokhail, Afghan ambassador to Canada.
