The Afghanistan War Monument is the site where we commemorate Indigenous Veterans Day until the Batoche Memorial and Aboriginal War Monument miniatures are created for our Metis and Indigenous Service & History Clusters. It is also where we will celebrate/commemorate Canadian Forces Day and other military related events.
