This Memorial is erected to honour Canada�s soldiers who gave their lives in the service of peace in Afghanistan
This sculpture stands in the Memorial Park in Tweed Ontario to honour the lives of the Canadians who have lost their lives in Afghanistan trying to help stop terrorists and rebuild that war torn country.
The Guardian was donated to the Town of Tweed and the Tweed Legion and portrays a white wolf baying mournfully over the lost and will stand guard over them for many years to come.
The unselfish, dedicated Canadian Soldiers are putting their lives in danger trying to stop terrorists from bringing their criminal acts to this country and deserve to be honoured.
Sergeant Vaughan Ingram, was wounded in a skirmish while on tour of duty in Afghanistan. He could have returned Canada but wanted to stay in Afghanistan, to be back with his company. In another fire fight he was badly injured and continued to help other wounded men under his command and gave orders trying to keep his men safe while not caring for his own health and sadly succumbed to his wounds on August 3rd, 2006.
This is only one of the many stories of the brave souls lost while in service of peace in Afghanistan.
