A focus on Afghanistan at Lennoxville’s Remembrance Day

By Gordon Lambie

This year’s Remembrance Day ceremony in Lennoxville was dedicated to commemorating the end of the Canadian mission in Afghanistan, including a specific remembrance of Captain Nichola Goddard. “Captain Nichola Goddard was one of 40,000 Canadians who served on that mission which ended just five years ago,” read Master of Ceremonies Scott Passmore, explaining that Goddard was killed by enemy fire during an ambush on a convoy. “This Remembrance day the Canadian Armed Forces members will be thinking of the 158 servicepeople and seven civilians we lost in the war in Afghanistan, and the 40 Americans who were serving under Canadian command in Afghanistan at the time that they died.” See full story in the Monday, Nov. 11 edition of The Record.
