Afghanistan plaque ­approved for Lennoxville memorial

By Gordon Lambie

On the night of October 1, while the rest of the world was thinking about provincial politics, the City of Sherbrooke approved a request from the Army, Navy and Air Force Veterans in Canada (ANAF) allowing them to add a plaque to the Lennoxville cenotaph in recognition of those who fought in the war in Afghanistan. Although no residents of Sherbrooke lost their lives in the 13-year conflict, the plaque was requested as a way of recognizing the contributions of all Sherbrooke veterans. According to ANAF spokesperson Linda Caron, the plaque will likely be installed on the Lennoxville cenotaph sometime between now and the 11th of November.
