Proudly displayed, the Canadian flag serves as an important reminder in our favourite photo of the week of the work our Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) members carry out in the world for our country.
Shot by Corporal Eric Greico, Canadian Armed Forces photo, the image features a member of Air Task Force IMPACT, Air Move Detachment, conducting his duties in a CC-130 Hercules aircraft in Iraq on Jan. 30, 2022.
This Canada Day, we salute our CAF members and all they do for our country. Many will spend this Canada Day deployed in various parts of the world, far away from friends and family.
Some of these deployments include Operation Impact, the CAF’s contribution in the Middle East that extends to many countries, including Iraq, Jordan, and Lebanon.
