I am proud to be a member of the Canadian Forces. My pride comes from the service and sacrifice of those I serve with. This is especially true of those who worked and fought in Afghanistan. I know so many of them. They are my family. They are my regimental brothers and sisters. I think especially of those who gave the ultimate sacrifice. I think of their families. Please pray for our veterans. The war may be over in Afghanistan but many of our soldiers will keep wounds all of their lives. God bless Canada and God bless our military. We are proud of you.
