5 Brave Canadians Come Home.
Today, 4 Canadian Soldiers and a reporter from Calgary have been repatriated after being killed in an IED attack in Afghanistan. Canada has been in Afghanistan since 2002 and has lost 138 soldiers in ambush attacks, accidents and IED incidents.
Canada has been fighting in one of the most dangerous parts of Afghanistan. While public support for our deployment has been wavering, every Canadian should be proud of the contributions our Armed Forces have made.
Canada is often viewed as a peacekeeping nation but we have made significant contributions in Korea, World War 2, the Former Yugoslavia and in Afghanistan. Too often the US and international media forget the Canadian contribution to the "war on terror".
Their ultimate sacrifice will not be forgotten. May they rest in peace.
