For the Canadians serving in Afghanistan, reminders of home were treasured — even when they came in the form of a cup of coffee. Tim Hortons operated at the Kandahar Airfield between 2006 and 2011, offering familiar snacks to Canadian servicemen and servicewomen. In 2010, Wendy Hayward (centre) took a job at that Tim Hortons. She felt a personal connection to the Canadians serving in Afghanistan because her son, Corporal James Hayward Arnal, was killed in a roadside bomb explosion in Afghanistan on 18 July 2008.
Her photographs of the Tim Hortons on Remembrance Day in 2010 show messages sent by children from across Canada.
