Cpl. Francisco Gomez, & Cpl. Jason Patrick Warren

Just found out a good buddy was injured in the blast..

RIP Troops, and a speedy recovery to the injured.  :salute:
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. :salute:  " We Will Remember Them"  :salute:


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.

Cpl. Warren      :salute: :cdn:

Heaven now has 2 more of Canada's finest to guard the pearly gates.
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. :salute: :cdn:
To the fallen - gratitude; to their families and friends - peace; to the wounded - Godspeed

The news hit us dozen Black Watch members pretty hard stationed here in Ottawa doing CG for the summer. I offer my most humble feelings of gratitude to the two fine soldiers we have lost.
I had a bad feeling about this before the news came on.... :(  :salute: R.I.P to the dead, those injured get well soon.  :cdn:
RIP boys.
Quick recovery to the injured.
My condolences to the families.


The Final Inspection

The soldier stood and faced his God,
Which must always come to pass;
He hoped his shoes were shining bright,
Just as brightly as his brass.

"Step forward now, soldier,
How shall I deal with you?
Have you turned the other cheek?
To my church have you been true?"
The soldier squared his shoulders and said,
"No, Lord, I guess I ain't;
Because those of us who carry guns,
Can't always be a saint.

I've had to work most Sundays,
And at times my talk was rough;
I've had to break your rules my Lord,
Because the world is awfully tough.
But, I never took a thing
That wasn't mine to keep;
Though I worked a lot of overtime,
When the bills got just too steep.

And I never passed a cry for help,
Though at times I shook with fear;
And sometimes ... God forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.
I know I don't deserve a place
Among the people here;
They never wanted me around,
Except to calm their fears.

If you've a place for me here, Lord,
It needn't be so grand;
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don't, I'll understand."
There was a silence all around the throne,
Where the saints often trod;
As the soldier waited quietly,
For the judgement of his God.

"Step forward now, soldier,
You've borne your burdens well;
Come walk peacefully on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in HELL!"

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.  :salute:

RIP Cpl. Gomez

RIP Cpl. Warren
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.

RIP Frank  :salute:

RIP Cpl Warren  :salute:
My condolences to the families of the fallen and wishing for a full and speedy recovery for the wounded. :salute:
