Event Description

On 11 September 2001, Al-Qaida terrorists struck the World Trade Center in New York City and the Pentagon in Washington, DC. This attack on the United States triggered the NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) agreement that an attack on one was an attack on all and led directly to Canada’s Mission to Afghanistan, 2001-2014. This talk by Captain (Retired) Howard Hisdal, CD, MA, a History professor at Okanagan College will cover the role of the British Columbia Dragoons in the Afghanistan conflict, both overseas and at home. This lecture will be delivered in person at the Okanagan Military Museum AND online via Zoom. By donation. Registration required as space is limited (click the link above to register).
