Are you in the cf? Been to the Stan?

Nope. Curtis is in high school and I’m in university, although we both aspire to join the CF some day. I started this blog two and a half years ago when I was 16. I was miffed that there were like 500+ “fuck yeah” blogs for the armed forces of the UK and of the US and of Australia but not a single one for the CF.

Also, to that one guy who reblogged that one picture with the regular hipster “oil war” jargon -
There’s no oil in Afghanistan. Get your shit straight.
If you’re going to make an argument, use actual facts and stop spouting off the first thing you read off some new-age wordpress blog based in Seattle.
That is all. Thankyougodbless.

A wounded Canadian soldier from the NATO-led coalition crawls for cover seconds after his position was hit by a Taliban shell fired from an 82-millimeter recoilless rifle during an ambush in Zhari district, October 23, 2007.

Hope he got out ok

He spent a few days off the line for treatment, but he returned to his unit soon after, if I remember correctly.-André
