Very sad indeed....My condolences to the families of the fallen soldiers. Thank you Canada for believing in Liberty and Freedom.

Why I posted the Pictures... I was going through some News Photos and was very moved by them. I started to think..here is Canada..a large nation with a small but VERY good Infantry..they have soldiers fighting in Afghanistan. They don't have to be there. It wasn't Canada that got attacked on Sept. 11, but there they are..they are risking their lives for the Worlds Biggest Superpower. Why ? I don't like Canada's Gun Control Laws or their taxes..but in spite of their government I really can't help but admire the courage and professionalism that their soldiers exhibit. Nor can I help myself but feel deeply saddened by their loss. We OWE the Canucks for putting their lives on the lines to fight for us. Thank you Canada. We will REMEMBER your sacrifice and your courage.
