In keeping with our reckless, devil-may-careimage, our of-fice has absolutely no concrete information on the
Carillon
’sformative years readily available. What follows is the storythat’s been passed down from editor to editor for over fortyyears.In the late 1950s, the University of Regina planned the con-struction of several new buildings on the campus grounds.One of these proposed buildings was a bell tower on the aca-demic green. If you look out on the academic green today,the first thing you’ll notice is that it has absolutely nothingresembling a bell tower.The University never got a bell tower, but what it did getwas the
Carillon
 ,anewspaper that serves as a symbolic belltower on campus, a loud and clear voice belonging to eachand every student.

Capt. Walter Martin
Captain Walter Martin during a Village Medical Outreach near the town of Elback in the Province of Kandahar,Afghanistan
What Captain Walter Martin remem- bers most about his tours inAfghanistan is the scorching heat.“It was about 63 degrees Celsiusduring the day there; we drank half alitreof water every half hour to stayhydrated, and every third bottle of water was a Gatorade,” he said. “Itwas the only way to keep the elec-trolytes up, so we could get our jobsdone … I remember one time whenthe Taliban took over the Helmandprovince – an area occupied by theBritish troops – and we had to move150 km in one day in that heat.”Martin is a reservist who hasserved in the Canadian Forces for thepast 30 years. He did two tours of duty in Afghanistan, and was also in-volved in peacekeeping in Bosnia dur-ing the ’90s.Martin first spent four months inAfghanistan in 2006. His tour of dutywas supposed to last three months, but had a month extensions whenlieutenant Bill Turner was killed in ac-tion. Martin’s role was to assist withthe reconstruction of villages de-stroyed by the Taliban. He helped ap-praise food and water supplies,provided medicine to the people, andhelped evaluate the economical stateof the damaged villages.One of the bigger challenges wasacting as “a communication liaison between the civilians and the localmilitary,” he explained.“I had to work through an inter-preter, which was very challenging attimes, because I didn’t know the lan-guage. Some soldiers manage to be-come fluent in Farsi, Tajik, or Pashtun(regional Afghani languages), butmany of us work through interpreters,and with all the discussion going on,you can wear an interpreter out veryquickly.”Martin’s second tour inAfghanistan was in 2009. He wasaway from his family for most of thatyear.“Wewerein Kandahar building bridges and we repaired a dam … itscontrols were faulty, but it wasn’t dueto battle damage,” he said. “That tourput the completion of my communica-tions degree on hold, and I was nearlydone [laughs].”Before his first tour to Kandahar,Martin said he had to spend a com-pulsory three-and-a-half months of cultural briefing to learn about theAfghani culture.“One of the biggest differences between Canada and Afghanistan ishow our cultures treat women; thewomen in Afghani culture are se-cluded from society,” he said. “Thepeople of Afghanistan value educa-tion above all else.”Martin said that under the influ-ence of the Taliban, the citizens of Afghanistan wereordered to read theQuran daily but could not read anyother forms of literature. He saidwomen, as well as poorer citizens likefarmers, were forbidden to read.“The ironic thing is that the word‘Taliban’ means “student” – but theymean a student of the Quran,” Martinsaid.Martin said that because of thepower of education in Afghani society,the Taliban liked to kill school teach-ers to prevent outside knowledgefrom invading the culture.“I remember one time, when theTaliban invaded a village and to savehimself, one teacher fled to anothervillage across the river … the localpeople hid the teacher from [theTaliban] and if they were found out,all of them would have been killed,”he said.“One of my proudest momentswhile I was serving [in Afghanistan]was when I met that teacher and pre-sented him with school supplies, pa-per,pencils – that type of thing … hewas grinning from ear to ear.”Master Corporal Thomas Boxallretired from the forces in 2008 and is aUniversity of Regina graduate. Heserved in Afghanistan in 2004, andalso remembers the importance of ed-ucation in Afghani society. One of Boxall’s roles while on tour was tohelp rebuild a girls school.“Imagine, a sixteen-year-old girlwho has never been allowed to readand can’t write her own name, andnow she has a place to learn,” he said.“It was very rewarding to be part of that project.”Boxall also said that with theprovincial election coming up, hecouldn’t help but think about witness-ing Afghanistan’s first democraticelection while he was on tour.”Leading up to the elections, theTaliban had a strong presence acrossthe country – they handed out pam-phlets saying, ‘If you show up on elec-tion day,you will be shot,’” Boxallsaid.“The day before the election therewas a sandstorm that ended up last-ing three days, so the election went off without a hitch, and nobody waskilled or injured.“It makes you think about whatdemocracy is and how lucky we areinthis country.”Martin said he is proud of the ef-forts that Canadian troops have putforth over the past three decades.Change is slow, but things are mel-lowing in Afghanistan.“What we are doing for the worldis worth the cost.”
Leading up to the elections,the Taliban had astrong presence across the country – they handedout pamphlets saying,‘If you show up on electionday,you will be shot,
