In the fall of 2016 the Royal Canadian Legion Branch #17 Wellington in partnership with the Community of Wellington has acquired a LAV III (Light Armored Vehicle) Monument to recognize the service and sacrifice of the Canadian Armed Forces in Afghanistan. The monuments are created from decommissioned LAV III hulls. They offered a great defense and became relied upon to protect our troops and preserve life during the conduct of a variety of missions to help restore peace and government to the people of Afghanistan. To date it is the only one of its kind on PEI.

The monument specially commemorates the “Fallen” who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.

It is located on the grounds of the Royal Canadian Legion in Wellington adjacent to another monument honoring those in the First, second and Korean Wars; it will provide our citizens a place to pay tribute to our veterans of Afghanistan and ensure that our Fallen heroes of that conflict will be forever remember.
