Private tragedy ~ public dismay

Andrew Joseph Doiron
1984 ~ 2015
Once again the Canadian flag  at Priestly Demolition, in Kettleby, was flying at half mast
on Wednesday of this week in honour of Canadian soldier Sgt. Andrew Joseph Doiron, who was killed by 'friendly fire' while serving in Iraq.   The Priestly company has routinely lowered its massive Canadian flag to honour each Canadian soldier killed in the line duty.   Sgt. Doiron was just the second soldier to travel the Highway of Heros since the end of the Afghan mission in 2011.   The other was Cpl. Nathan Cirillo, shot down while standing ceremonial guard in October of last year.   Previously, 158 Canadian soldiers were killed in combat during the Afghan mission.
