140 ...

Corporal Caleb Baker age 24, from Edmonton,
served with the Loyal Edmonton Regiment,
4th Battalion Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry,
he died in a training exercise on Friday February 12th 2010
in Afghanistan.
The story passed almost unnoticed in the hype of the Olympics,
and the coverage of other stories ...
His body is making its way home to his grieving family,
and our Military Forces mark the 140th death of
a Canadian Soldier in Afghanistan ...
Thoughts and prayers for Corporal Baker's family,
his comrades who were wounded in the mishap,
and all those who remain in Afghanistan.
Lest We Forget !!
