The Afghanistan Repatriation Memorial is a beautiful, permanent memorial honouring our Canadian soldiers – the men and women who have sacrificed their lives in Afghanistan’s conflict.
In a park-like setting on the beautiful Bay of Quinte and with 8 Wing/Canadian Forces Base Trenton – Canada’s largest Air Force base nearby, the Afghanistan Repatriation Memorial is a fitting tribute not far from where Canadian repatriation ceremonies occur and at the beginning of our fallen soldiers’ journey along the Highway of Heroes, from Trenton to Toronto. These motorcades saw thousands of Canadians on many of Highway 401’s overpasses paying tribute to those killed in action and their families, all the way to Toronto.
The entire site was designed to be reflective and contemplative and harmonize with its surroundings. Within the Memorial’s circular form, two granite benches provide seating for those who come to reflect and enjoy the peace and beauty of the memorial site and park.
