M.D. Honours Canadians Lost in Afghanistan


On March 12,2014, the M.D. of Wainwright lowered its flags in respect for the 162 lives lost and the countless number of soldiers that were injured in the Afghan war.

Of the 162 people killed, over 25% came from Alberta. They were either born in Alberta or were stationed here at the time of their death.

The Afghan war lasted as long as the two World Wars and the Korean Conflict combined. The families of these brave men and women also suffered as they struggled to keep the family unit strong. The Canadian soldiers help liberate a country where before the war, only 1 million boys were allowed to go to school. Now 7 million children go to school, with 3 million of them being girls.
