Master Cpl. Byron Greff Repatriated
The flagged draped coffin of Master Corporal Byron Greff made its way back home yesterday and made it’s trip down the Highway of Heroes as Canada welcomed home its latest soldier home from Afghanistan.
The 158th Canadian soldier to return from Afghanistan, Greff was travelling between bases aboard an armoured NATO bus when a suicide bomber detonated a car packed with 700 kilograms of explosives.
Master Corporal Greff is survived by his wife and two young children, all of whom were on hand for the repatriation at CFB Trenton Tuesday afternoon.
Canadian Heroes would like to send their deepest sympathies and condolences to Master Corporal Greff family and comrades. A true hero is back home and we thank him for his sacrifice.
