ActiveAndFit saidI am kinda surrounded by u.s. service-members here, and don't think about troops of our allies a whole lot, but here was a very moving video of a Canadian soldier. Watch it all the way though:
I was deployed to a base in afghanistan in Feb. this year with the NATO forces. Among my favorite to work alongside, were the Canadians. Fun-loving, fearless, and hardworkers.... those are words that can describe them. I will always remember the hard times we had there... and in the face of adversity and all the threats we received on a regular basis... there were a few of them who always made me smile and kept me in a positive atmosphere.
I plan on visiting one of the many canadian memorials for their troops. After all the losses we incurred, and all the Fallen Soldier ceremonies I stood in.... I still feel like it's not enough and that we all have to do our part to help shoulder the burden of war.
Alright, I'll get off my soapbox now.
