My decision to deploy to Afghanistan was, more than any other reason, made after learning about the country’s almost incomprehensible infant, child, and maternal mortality rates…
He didn’t do it for George Bush. No mention of any oil pipeline. Nope, he just wanted to help a country get back on its feet and save the lives of women and children. It’s that simple.
I’m proud to know him.
UPDATE: Sadly, some stories of Canadian heroes end in tragedy. The latest horrors perpetrated by the Taliban against people who were just trying to help ordinary Afghan people show the evil that Afghanistan and the international community is up against. We will remember.
If there is justice, their sacrifice won’t have been in vain.
