  • Plaque– This was the laser engraved granite plaque that we designed to mark the unfortunate passing of Major Pépin.  

It was originally displayed at the Kandahar Cenotaph from the date of his passing - and was repatriated to Canada in 2014.  

Today, it can be seen at the Afghanistan War Memorial located at National Defence Headquarters in Kanata, On.
