A Soldier's Life...

Postby nimby » Thu Sep 25, 2008 10:18 am

Hello all

I'd like to share a true story of a Canadian soldier who touched the lives of many people in a rather odd way. I know every soldier has a history, no matter what country they are from, but this story started to play out in a very public way that touched the hearts of millions of people just before comming to a very abrupt and sad end.

Please take the time to read this, as this could be the story of any soldier you deeply care about. And yes, they are ALL heroes.
