A Fallen Hero

The cadets in Arctic Bay paid their respects tonight with a moment of silence in memory of Pte. Robert Costall who lost his life while serving in Afganistan. Pte. Costall was only 22. As a former cadet and reservist I know of the close bonds of respect and friendship that form between brothers- and sisters-in-arms. His sacrifice to Canadians while wearing his country's uniform is something that should always be honoured and remembered. Rest well brother.
