On “Canada Day” in 2009, Cpl. Nick Bulger was in Afghanistan handing out “things from home” to his comrades. Who would have guessed the Yellow Ribbon Campaign would still be sending “things from home” to our soldiers! To Kuwait, Ukraine, Poland, Iraq.
In 2017 Canadian Soldiers are in Egypt. They are there to patrol the zone closest to the Egyptian-Israeli border… MFO (Multinational Force Observers). The weather is “Hot”! My contact over there has already experienced a couple 40 degree days, if you can imagine!!
Soldiers celebrated “Canada Day” in Egypt. Boxes were taken to Trenton on June 13th, we included lots of “Red & White” items…to show the other Nations how we Support our Canadian Troops, and how Proud we are!
Items were sent over for Christmas 2017. Take a look HERE at some pictures and comments from the soldiers and families
