My deepest Condolences to the families and Friends of Cpl Gomez & Cpl Warren. Frank will be remember by those of us (2PPCLI) who know him, I remember him as a soft spoken guy who always had a smile on his face. " We Will Remember Them"
I was one of those that others did not dare to be
I went where others feared to go
And did what others failed to do
I asked nothing from those who gave nothing
And reluctantly accepted the thought of eternal loneliness
...Should I fail
I have seen the face of terror
Felt the sting of fear
And enjoyed the sweet taste of a moment's love
I have cried, pained and hoped
But most of all I have lived times
That others would say are best forgotten
At least now today
I am able to say
That I am proud of what I was
As a member of E-Coy PPCLI (Ldsh RC) I would like to offer condolences to the families of Cpl Frank Gomez and Cpl Jason Warren.Unfortunately I did not know Cpl Warren.However Cpl Gomez was a valuable member of E-Coy.He was well liked by all and he will be missed. The Canadian Army has lost two fine soldiers. The country of Canada has lost two of her sons.They will be remembered.
RIP boys you have done your job, you are the noblest of soldiers we will not forget you. My thoughts are with the loved ones of the two soldiers and all the wounded and the regimental family. Keep up the good fight.
I saw Cpl. Gomez's father on the news talking about his son last night. What class & dignity. The man was so proud of his son & didn't seem the least bit saddened by his early departure because of his beliefs in the Allmighty. He knows his son has a place reserved in heaven with fallen warriors of past battles. He understood fully what his son did, what he was all about and his passion for his job and was proud of that. I'm sure he has a grieving heart, but his faith is obviously quite strong. My beret is off to you Mr. Gomez.
Didn't know Cpl Warren but did know Frank for over 20 years. A good soldier, quiet and professional, an ex-member of the Canadian Airborne Regiment who will be missed by all who knew him. My condolences go to both families and fast recoveries to those wounded.
