In war there are casualties

Like the 3,598 Canadian soldiers who died in the battle that finally took Vimy Ridge, this soldier paid the ultimate price.

Pte. Josh Klukie, a member of the 1st Battalion, Royal Canadian Regiment, which is based at CFB Petawawa near Ottawa, died Friday after triggering what may have been an improvised explosive device (IED) on a road in Afghanistan's Panjwaii district.
He will be remembered.
