Two more Canadian casualties

Two Canadian soldiers have been killed along with a coalition soldier in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan.

The Canadians have been identified as 38-year-old Master Cpl. Pat Audet and 25-year-old Cpl. Martin Joannette.

Military officials say the incident at an American base in Zabul province, about 80 kilometres northeast of Kandahar, was not related to insurgent activity.
They will be remembered.

I'd rather not be so cynical, but I seriously doubt it. I really hope they are, however, with the jackal-like media feeding frenzy coverage of Michael Jackson's memorial, do you really believe that?

What a bloody shame. It sort of of puts things in perspective(?), doesn't it?

perhaps not by the general public, michael... but do you have any doubt that they will be remembered by family, friends and comrades?
