The LAV III Monument Program
The LAV III Monument Program recognizes the service of the Canadian Armed Forces in Afghanistan by providing LAV IIIs (Light Armoured Vehicles) to qualifying communities throughout Canada. These specific vehicles will be constructed from pieces of retired LAV IIIs, declared surplus through the Department of National Defence’s (DND) recent LAV III upgrade program. Even though from the outside, the vehicle may look as if it’s ready to fight, it will be delivered in a non-functional state. Constructing the programs LAV IIIs will be completed together by volunteers and students.
