Today on the National Day of Honour, we mark the end of Canada's military mission in Afghanistan. We pay tribute to the men and women who were the casualties of Canada's 12-year mission in Afghanistan. With our deepest respect, we remember the immeasurable sacrifices made by so many Canadians and their families.
We stand with our veterans and will advocate on their behalf to ensure that they receive the highest level of support and assistance as they reintegrate into Canadian society after witnessing the unspeakable.
Let us continue to work toward ending war to ensure that more families do not have to make the same sacrifices.
