DND: Statement from the family of Trooper Mark Andrew Wilson

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 10, 2006) - Josh, Ben and I are still reeling from the news we received regarding Mark's death. Mark very proudly served his country and died for a cause he believed in. He will be sadly and forever missed by his wife and sons, as well as by his parents, siblings, and extended family. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the troops of his regiment, those deployed in Khandahar and at CFB Petawawa. We also send our deepest condolences to those who have lost their loved ones while serving in Afghanistan.

During this difficult time, as we grieve the loss of a loved one, we respectfully request privacy.

Loving Family and Friends
