Canadian Casualty in Afghanistan - Maj. Michelle Mendes

A Canadian officer, Michelle Mendes, was found dead in her quarters at the Nato base in Kandahar, Afghanistan, yesterday afternoon.

Information on the circumstances of death is sparse. A statement by the Department of National Defence can be found here. A piece by the Globe and Mail, linking this death to other suicides in the Canadian military, can be found here.

Major Mendes becomes the third Canadian soldier to die in Afghanistan.

May she rest in peace, and may light perpetusl shine upon her.
