Kandahar Diary
Iain departed Kandahar yesterday (Aug 23rd). He has a
couple of stopovers before he gets back home - we expect
him to arrive Kingston on Tuesday August 29.
Near the conclusion of his tour at Kandahar, Iain received the South
West Asia Service Medal.

Iain is scheduled to arrive in Edmonton at 5:30 pm Edmonton time on
Monday Aug 28th. He is on "Chalk 10", shown on the
CFB Edmonton
at right.

He will then fly on to Kingston arriving Tuesday morning.

When Prime Minister Harper visited Kandahar back in March, Iain got a
chance to meet him. This week Iain sent us a photo taken during the visit,
in which you can see Iain just to the right of the PM.
