What's daily life like for Canadian troops on the frontlines in Afghanistan? Members of the Royal 22e Regiment know—they were there, witnessing the complexity of the issues on the ground, and they help shed light on the little-understood experiences of the men and women who served in Afghanistan.
To mark Remembrance Day 2012, in partnership with the Canadian War
Museum the National Film Board of Canada (NFB) is offering students the rare
opportunity to meet Royal 22e Regiment soldiers, in person or virtually, and to
learn about their time in Afghanistan. These military men and women were the
focus of the recent documentary The Van Doos in Afghanistan.
Our event, hosted by historian Dr. Andrew Burtch and Education team
member Michèle Tredger, will take place at the Canadian War Museum in Ottawa;
local students may attend in person and students from any Canadian school can
link in through teleconferencing. This event is only suitable for students in
Grades 9–12 and in college or CEGEP. One
conversation will be held in French on November 6 and another in English on
November 7—both at 1:30 p.m. EST. This event will be one hour in duration.
