Summary Canada’s Afghanistan mission officially ended in 2014, but the consequences of Canada’s longest war are still reverberating through military communities across the nation. The number of Canadian soldiers and veterans who have taken their lives after their Afghanistan deployment had been a tightly guarded military secret until exposed by The Globe and Mail. The newspaper’s series, The Unremembered, takes readers beyond the suicide toll, revealing serious flaws in the military’s mental health-care system and the devastating effects on soldiers.
