I know this thread has started a little late but I would like to start honoring the fallen Canadian soldiers on this tread starting at #107 from afghanistan, better late then never.




107th Canadian Solider Killed In Afghanistan To Come Home Saturday
Saturday January 10, 2009
CityNews.ca Staff
The latest in a long line of Canadian soldiers to die in Afghanistan will return home Saturday.

Trooper Brian Good was killed Wednesday in a roadside bomb blast. The 42-year-old leaves behind a wife and two children.

Good was serving with the 3rd Battalion of the Royal Canadian Regiment battle group and was from the Royal Canadian Dragoons out of CFB Petawawa.

Three others were wounded in the explosion in the Shah Wali Kowt district.

The plane carrying Good's body is expected to land at CFB Trenton at 2pm. There will be a ceremony on the base and after that, his flag-draped casket will travel along the Highway of Heroes to Toronto.

Mourners are expected to line the route to pay their respects to the fallen solider.



Thank you Brian Good.

Jan. 31, 2009: One soldier killed by roadside bomb
A Canadian soldier was killed in Afghanistan as he participated in a major operation to locate bomb-making factories in Taliban territory. The soldier was killed at the tail end of the mission when his vehicle was struck by a improvised explosive device.



Sapper Sean Greenfield
Greenfield was a member of 24 Field Engineer Squadron, 2 Combat Engineer Regiment based out of Petawawa, Ont., serving with the 3rd Battalion of the Royal Canadian Regiment Battle Group.

Greenfield, 25, was described as exceptionally fit and aspired to join JTF2, Canada's elite and secretive special forces team. His fellow soldiers said he had a great sense of humour and he loved to sing and play guitar.

Thank you Sean Greenfield




I would really like it if someone could pick up the slack on this tread if I have not posted the new fallen, thanks.
