Camp Ziouani, Golan Heights, United Nations Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) mission area
November 05, 2002
Digger, the maintenance platoon dog, has been with the Canadian Contingent of the Logistics Battalion (LOGBATT) for the equivalent of 23 tours of peacekeeping duty at Camp Ziouani, Golan Heights. Digger, who is revered by camp personnel and holds the honourary rank of Sergeant, has even had his picture taken with Canadian Prime Minister Jean Chretien during the PM's visit to the camp in April 2000.
The mission of the Canadian Contingent of UNDOF, also known as OP DANACA, is to monitor and supervise the disengagement agreement between Israel and Syria. The Canadian Contingent provides most of the troops for the UNDOF Logistic Battalion, as well as a number of communications and headquarters personnel. Canadian peacekeepers have been serving with UNDOF since its inception, and will mark 29 years in the mission during April 2003.
