Mission: Afghanistan (Virtual Tour)
Mission: Afghanistan chronicles the involvement of the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) in Afghanistan from 2001-2014 and provides a broader context for the mission that was predicated by terrorist attacks on September 11 in New York City. More than 40,000 CAF members served in the Afghanistan theatre of operations; 162 members died in the cause, while others sustained devastating physical and psychological injuries. Artefacts from collections of both The Military Museums and The Directorate of History and Heritage will be featured in this bilingual exhibit, alongside items on loan from veterans themselves that illustrate over 400 oral history clips and mini-documentaries.
There are two bilingual versions of this exhibit available for rent: a 3D version with artefacts and a 2D version that consists of information panels and audiovisual components only.
