Bound for Afghanistan

armyPatrol

Greg Miller and I got a chance to follow Canadian soldiers training for combat in Afghanistan. The soldiers were from the Edmonton Garrison and were on an intense reconaissance training course which involved sleep deprivation, bad weather (as you can see) very little food and long, stressful missions. After a day of following these guys around I had all new respect for the Canadian military and their mission in Afghanistan. We went home to comfortable homes as these guys went out on another cold night mission.
