About this series
The story of Canada’s combat mission in Afghanistan didn’t end when the flag was lowered at Kandahar Airfield in December. A tale that began when Canadians first set foot in Kandahar 10 years ago continues for veterans, military families, soldiers’ hometowns and the people who strive to ease the pain of the wounded.
Postmedia News and Postmedia newspapers from across Canada have joined forces to tell the sometimes complicated story of what “coming home” means to the former combatants and to their communities. The series continues in the Citizen until tomorrow.
