Cpl. Andrew James Eykelenboom

We count yet another noble young man among those who have given their lives so that innocent people in a country far from our's may live in peace and freedom. What could be more Canadian than to strive to make the world a more peaceful place?

My heart simply aches for the family of Cpl. Eykelenboom. Young men have always sacrificed their lives in the pursuit of something so we consider so basic as freedom, but for the people of Afghanistan freedom is precious. And so we salute our young hero, and bid that he rest in peace with the legions of Canadian heroes who have gone before him.

If you wish to send your condolences to the family, please do so here.
