A multinational peacekeeping force was established in 1992 to address the humanitarian crisis ensued in the Balkans after the dissolution of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. NATO and European Union missions continued in the area in an attempt to restore peace post 1995. Canadians contributed personnel to both UN and NATO missions until 2000, with units from The RCR involved in some of the most significant events during the conflict. This panel will focus on the deployment of “N” Coy, 3RCR and “G” Coy, 2RCR under UNPROFOR, which may sound like a complicated acronym. Lieutenant-General (retired) Peter Devlin and Major-General Dennis (retired) Thompson were in leadership positions at the time and have agreed to share their experience in the theatre.
Panellists: Lieutenant-General (retired) Peter Devlin; Major-General (retired) Dennis Thompson
