Doing the Stone Boat, and all Canadians proud

Babble on.

It's good to hear our soldiers' equipment in Afghanistan is doing its job and protecting them from serious harm wherever possible.

Three Canadian soldiers suffered minor injuries on Thursday when a roadside bomb went off in the Afghanistan province of Kandahar.

The soldiers received "bumps and bruises" when their LAV-3 armoured vehicle was hit by the blast.


On the commute home tonight, listening to CBC Radio, one of the officers in their chain of command was interviewed. He said Canadian soldiers were well-equipped, well-trained, and eager to accomplish their mission.

Best wishes for a successful mission go out from this corner to that officer, Maj Kirk Gallinger, an old classmate who has undoubtedly switched places with me on the BMI scale since the last time we spoke. BZ, Kirk, and come home safe.

Babble off.

Normally, I'd agree with you, MB, but when it comes to a Frigateer overseas, I hope he floats right back home once his mission is complete.

I also hope he returns safely.
