Canadian Base Under Attack in Afghanistan

The main Canadian military base in Afghanistan came under attack Saturday after insurgents fired rockets and mortars before quickly launching a ground attack.  The attack at the Kandahar airfield base occurred at about 8 p.m. local time as militants tried unsuccessfully to breach the northern perimeter.  A small number of people were injured and are being treated for their injuries.  This is the third major assault on NATO’s military hubs in Afghanistan in six days.

I hope all the troops overseas and at home remain secure, and my prayers are with you.  Come home safely.
