Canadian Soldier Growing Grass in Afghanistan

AWESOME -- God Bless Him !!!

Here is a picture of a Canadian soldier in Afghanistan with his tiny "plot" of grass in front of his tent. It's heartwarming! He asked hi
s wife to send him dirt (Canadian soil), fertilizer, and some grass seed so he could smell the sweet aroma of grass and feel it grow beneath his feet.
When the men of his squadron have a mission they are going on, they take turns walking through the grass and the Canadian soil -- to bring them good luck. If you notice, he is even cutting the grass with a pair of a scissors.
Sometimes we are in such a hurry that we don't stop and think about the little things that we take for granted. Upon receiving this, please say a prayer for our Canadian soldiers that give and give and, yes, sacrifice their lives so unselfishly for us.


  1. This guy isn't a Canadian soldier. He is wearing American PT gear.

    1. yeah that's my uncle definitely not Canadian!!!! hahah weird people!11

  2. Then the person who sent me the information got it wrong. Now I don't know what the real story is, but the essence of what he is doing and why remains the same.

  3. My step dad is the one that took the picture.He wanted me to say that the men did not walk throw the grass before they went out.
