The City of Windsor is looking to recognize the service and sacrifice of the Canadian Armed Forces who served in the Afghanistan War.
Windsor City Council will be asked to approved the addition of an inscription to the downtown cenotaph that will read “Afghanistan 2002-2012”.
The city is looking to have the inscription complete in time for May 9th, the day that has now been set aside Canada wide to commemorate the Afghanistan war.
In addition, a new Peacekeepers memorial will be installed in Coventry/Reaume Park. This memorial will be a four-sided granite monument with the north side dedicated to the Peacekeepers and the south Afghanistan War. The east and west sides will be reserved for future additions.
The monument will be located in the center of the park along the north/south walkway. The city hopes to have this complete by August 9th, which is National Peacekeepers Day.
Total cost for both projects is budgeted to be $100,000.
