Afghanistan 20 years on: What does it mean for Canadians?
Guest Speaker: Col. James Hammon
Tuesday February 22, 11:45 am at the
Grand Pacific Hotel, Victoria.
The presentation will bring the audience up to date on the developments since the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan in August 2021 and reflect on the nature of Canadian involvement in conflict zones around the world. Was the sacrifice in Afghanistan worthwhile? What do we do now? And more importantly, what lessons should engaged Canadians take from the experience in Afghanistan?
Club member and retired Colonel Jamie Hammond will provide a thoughtful and engaging presentation based on his 28-year military career including multiple tours in Afghanistan at the start and end of Canada’s combat operations as well as academic study through his current PhD work at the University of Victoria.
