LAVs used in Afghanistan to become commemorative monuments

Canada Company will be leading an initiative that places Light Armoured Vehicles used in the Canadian mission in Afghanistan in various qualifying communities across the country as commemorative monuments.

Blake Goldring, founder of Canada Company and the Honorary Colonel of the Canadian Army said in a statement, "Many of the monuments in Canada are more than 70 years old and are not relevant to this generation. The LAV III Monument program gives communities throughout Canada an opportunity to recognize the sacrifices of members of the Canadian Armed Forces in a very powerful and enduring way.”

Communities that wish to receive a LAV III Monument can visit www.lavmonument.ca. to find out more and to apply.
