Another sad reminder of what our Forces give to this country, not only in Afghanistan,but at home.

Roxanne LaLonde was on her way home Saturday evening when she saw her friend, Kellie Galipeau, standing in the middle of the road waving her arms and screaming as her 15-year-old son was swept through the frigid waters of the Rideau River.
Without a second thought, she kicked off her sneakers and ran into the water, only to drown while trying to save Grant Galipeau.

Roxanne was a 32 year-old Master Seaman in the Canadian Forces. Unfortunately, her valiant effort was in vain, Galipeau also died.

Not being of the Navy persuasion, I still wish upon you Fair Winds And Following Seas.

May God keep you and RIP
Per Ardua Ad Astra

It's so sad! Sometimes things happen that make absolutely no sense to us mere mortals, and this is one of them. God rest her soul and help her loved ones with their grief. :(
