CFB TRENTON, Ont. - A repatriation ceremony for the latest Canadian soldier killed in Afghanistan is scheduled for Tuesday at Canadian Forces Base Trenton in eastern Ontario.
Sapper Sean Greenfield, 25, died Saturday when his armoured vehicle struck a roadside bomb in Kandahar province.
He was the 108th Canadian soldier killed during the Afghan mission.
Tuesday's ceremony is tentatively set for 2 p.m.
Greenfield, who was based in Petawawa, Ont., was remembered by his colleagues as an affable young man with a natural charisma who drew a crowd whenever he brought out his guitar and sang.
He was a member of 2 Combat Engineer Regiment, serving with the 3rd Battalion of the Royal Canadian Regiment Battle Group. (CJUL, The Canadian Press)
