Army Vets Remembered

Local Afghanistan War veterans who lost their lives in the war are being remembered during the National Day of Honour at Waverly Park today. Many service members were on hand, including Afghanistan veteran Corporal Robin Rickards. Rickards served three tours of duty in Kandahar, Afghanistan, and says it's important to remember those lost in the war. Rickards says that days like the National Day of Honour keep the sacrifice these soldiers made in the front of mind. Nearly 300 people were on hand for the ceremonies to remember Corporal Anthony Boneca, Private Robert Costall, and Private Josh Klukie.
