To Afghanistan

My son Joshua Muir is a Reserve Canadian soldier.

He is going to Afghanistan on Friday for a tour of duty.

Thumbs up Come home safe

I know how you must feel - My son is with the Coldstream Guards in Aghanistan - and we are all very proud of him.
I hope all the young men and women of our armed forces come home safe and sound.
Dave

If it's not fun - your doing it wrong !!

It's hard to imagine what that feels like. Mostly, I image a keen sense of pride that your son is serving his country and securing the freedoms we enjoy each and every day. Freedom of religion and the freedom to ride!

Semper Fi,

Gravity

Aussies

Tell him to stay away from the Australians. Aussies and Canucks cause more trouble than the rest of them together.
