On Friday, Canada honoured the soldiers who died in service in Afghanistan during our mission there from 2002-12.

While the way the soldiers died can be readily found on the Internet, the Daily Herald chose to instead create a list by year from several sources of the year each Canadian soldier’s name, rank, age and hometown.

Whatever you might think of Canada’s role in the war, it’s worth taking a look at the list and imagining the people left behind and the unrealized potential lost to this nation.
