Remembrance BC Dragoons Afghanistan Facebook 1024x576 Canadas Mission in Afghanistan and the BC Dragoons 2001 2014

On 11 September 2001, Al-Qaida terrorists struck the World Trade Center in New York City and the Pentagon in Washington, DC.  This attack on the United States triggered the NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) agreement that an attack on one was an attack on all and led directly to Canada’s Mission to Afghanistan, 2001-2014.  This talk by Captain (Retired) Howard Hisdal, CD, MA, a History professor at Okanagan College will cover the role of the British Columbia Dragoons in the Afghanistan conflict, both overseas and at home.

Lectures available in person at the Okanagan Military Museum and online via Zoom.
