Canada: Some gave All

Warrant Officer Robert John Wilson, Pte. Demetrios Diplaros, Cpl. Mark Robert McLaren, all from 1st Battalion, Royal Canadian Regiment, were killed by an IED on Dec. 5.

U.S. Maj.-Gen. Michael Tucker, the deputy chief of staff of American and NATO-led forces in Afghanistan, commented on the deaths of the soldiers."It was unfortunate that an IED took the lives of these ... great Canadian soldiers today, and our hearts go out to their families and their loved ones,"..."(here)

All three soldiers were from the 1st Battalion Royal Canadian Regiment based at CFB Petawawa, located west of Ottawa. Prime Minister Stephen Harper visited Petawawa to express his condolences to military families who have deeply felt the effects of the overseas military campaign. (here)

Please keep ALL our troops - and their families - in your thoughts and prayers.

The angels are always near to those who are grieving,
to whisper to them that their loved
