CFB Shilo will publicly unveil the Portraits of Honour National Tour on Saturday afternoon.
The 10-by-40-foot oil painted mural represents the 157 Canadian Forces personnel who have lost their lives serving in Afghanistan, including 20 from Shilo. The hand painted mural has been touring Canada, and was in Winnipeg at the end of September.
The mural will be available for viewing at 1 p.m. at the Multi-Purpose Training Facility at CFB Shilo, just east of Brandon.
