Welcome Home, Corporal. Always remembered and honoured.
December 21st, 2010
Corporal Steve Martin of St.-Cyrille-de-Wendover, Quebec, fell in battle on Dec. 18, in Canada’s ongoing mission in Afghanistan. Later today his body will be repatriated.
The procession is scheduled to begin at 2pm in CFB Trenton, Ontario. Cpl. Martin’s body will be taken down the Highway of Heroes and led into Toronto.
Martin was killed only two days before his 25th birthday, which would have come on Monday, making his death that much more tragic.
Many of us from CanadianHeroes.com will be attending the ceremony. We will be there to show our support for our troops, the mission, and to chronicle the event, but more importantly we will be there to pay our respects. We urge those of you that have the time and the means to do so to show your support. Our heroes are out there fighting for us, so it’s up to us to honor and remember our heroes when they fall. See you out there...(Canadian Heroes here)
