Rest In Peace





--------------------------Trooper Brian Richard Good


Another Canadian soldier was killed by a roadside bomb in the northern part of Afghanistan's Kandahar province early Wednesday, say military officials.
The soldier died when an improvised explosive device detonated near the armoured vehicle in which he was travelling. Three other soldiers were injured in the incident in the Shah Wali Kowt district, about 35 kilometres north of the city of Kandahar.
Trooper Brian Richard Good, 42, was a member of the Royal Canadian Dragoons, serving with the 3rd Battalion of the Royal Canadian Regiment and stationed at the eastern Ontario Canadian Forces Base Petawawa.
Col. Jamie Cade, acting commander of Task Force Kandahar, described Good as an easygoing individual who would do anything for anyone.
"He was active in his community and the best neighbour you could ask for," said Cade.
"He had a distinctive laugh, a smile that reached from ear to ear. He is best remembered by his friends in the battle group for his love for his family; he spoke of them often."
Good leaves behind his wife, Sandra, and two daughters.

The fatality brings Canada's troop death toll in Afghanistan to 107 since the mission began in 2002.

And so again we stand on the Highway Of Heroes to pay our respects.
Rest in peace our 107th Canadian Hero.

I can;t stand it and Afghanistan is going on for a long time yet . Obama is moving troops from Iraq supposedly for another 18 mos in Afghanistan. Can't your government get out??there is no accounting for this country's stupidity but maybe you can convince yours. This man coming in is about to bankrupt America..I'm sorry I hate this loss of life ..

This was sad bear! He was number 10 in a month that brought us sadness!
He was also closer to my age than most of the "boys" , so I felt more of a kindred spirit towards him!

Bear, we lost two of our own this week as well but have no Highway of Heroes I'm taking my young visitor to the Canberra War Memorial museum next week and am hoping theres some tribute to our fallen few there. Very sad all this and it doesn't seem to be achieving much
