Today, the body of Cpl. Brian Pinksen will return to Canada, where he will finally rest in peace. He died on 30 Aug in Germany from wounds he received on 22 Aug in Afghanistan.
My thoughts are with Brian and his family as they cope with this horrific day, which I’m sure will only multiply into a million days of heartache.
Brian was only 21 years old and is the 152nd Canadian soldier to die in this war.
You will always be remembered.
