Female Canadian Soldier. --Other pinner says...This isn't my niece, but it could be. She was a combat infantry solier and medic. 5' tall and 100 lbs, at the beginning of a patrol her load-out would be 120 lbs, plus her medical kit and her C7 rifle. She volunteered for 3 tours. Canada, unlike the U.S. has has women serving in combat roles for many years. Af'stan was a long, vicious, dangerous war. Soldiers do not decide where we fight; we owe them all.
