    I've decided to make a thread chronicalling some of the heaviest fighting the CF has seen. Within the next few posts as I feel what had happend through these months were very important to not only the image of the CF but to the importance and impact is had on the rest of the country.

    I've got a friend I've gotten to know over the past few years who took part in Aug 3rd on some of the heaviest fighting on this period. Master Corporal Jerry Conlon was a LAV-III gunner during this time and fought through the day from 2am to 6pm. Part of his 7 month tour while there. As you can see in the photo to the left he's one of the pallbearers for a friend who was KIA.

    Feels good to make a Canadian thread, havn't done it in awhile :wiggle:

    Jerr's got some personal stories I'll ask for to post up on here since it's sure to be of interest. Specially Fearan I think. PM with any questions. I hope to have more personal pics up here in the coming days guys.
