    Salute to troops

    Afghanistan support

     
    Hi Robin! This is not about anyone specific, but rather a unit that helped us! In 2008 I was a Canadian military corporal driving re=supply convoys to the forward operating bases in the Panjway and Zarii districts near Kandahar. Most days the American Air Cavalry provided us with air cover for the dangerous drive, and I just wanted to say thank you!! Having their helicopters in the air covering our movements and giving us information on the road ahead made my job so much safer ! Please send a huge thank you to all American soldiers sailors, airmen/women, marines and of course special forces! I am so glad that we are able to work closely together in such troubling times! I was so thankful our two countries could work together in such a seamless manner to keep each other safe!! Thanks again!!
