I couldn't be more proud of the troops (all nations, and there's lots) in Kandahar Air Field. I really believe in the cause, and am extremely proud
to say I will soon find myself on the base itself. I will however, not be going over as as a soldier, instead as a civilian working one of the
facilities on the base. I don't know my exact position, this is up to the administrative personnel at the Canadian Forces Personnel Support Agency
(www.cfpsa.com). It could range range from working in the new Tim Hortons or in one of the four Canadian run retail outlets. I can't say how excited
I am for this opportunity to serve, not only my tropps, but soldiers from all over the world. My brother is currently in Kandahar, he is a member of
the 3 PPCLI (Canadian Infantry Regiment) that are currently a part of the taskforce. I have looked up to him my whole life, and while I knew military
life wasn't for myself, I am completely humbled by this opportunity to be a part of his world in my own capacity.
Here a couple links you can read about the training I went through to score this awesome job.
The Maple Leaf Article
There was a lot more media coverage concerning this training, especially since this is the first training of the new Tim Hortons on base, I currently
do not know my deployment date, but should be within the next 5 months. People of all nations, please support your troops, they are the most important
national asset ever. Canadian citizens reading this post, please, if you are intersted, apply at www.cfpsa.com.
Thank you all for reading, and look forward to your discussion.
