A mother of a son who has served in Afghanistan in 2 rotations - standing proudly behind him and supporting all the troops. I am here to hold a hand of, or lend a shoulder to other Military parents, families, wives and friends- as I too am a "Military Mom"- at home.

The Joint Task Force salutes as the body of fallen soldier Trooper Darryl James Caswell, carried by his comrades is slowly marched through the ranks and to the waiting C130 Hercules Transport plane. Trooper Caswell was a member of the Royal Canadian Dragoons Reconnaissance Squadron from CFB Petawawa and was part of the 2nd Battalion Royal Canadian Regiment Battle group of Joint Task Force Afghanistan. He's on his way home.
