Shot on April 13, 2021, at Camp Adazi, Latvia, Canadian Armed Forces soldiers fire a Carl Gustaf 84mm rocket launcher during Operation REASSURANCE eFP.

The soldiers are deployed with enhanced Forward Presence Battle Group. The military personnel are part of NATO assurance and deterrence measures.

The measures aim to reinforce NATO’s collective defence and also show the strength of Allied solidarity. During the operation, the CAF conducts training, exercises, and some NATO-specific tasks.

According to the Canadian Government website, “the CAF support to NATO helps make Central and Eastern Europe more secure and stable. It also shows that the CAF is a professional force that is ready for any task.”

The image was taken by MCpl Stuart MacNeil, enhanced Forward Presence Battle Group – Latvia Imagery Technician. The image is courtesy of the Canadian Armed Forces Photo.

Cyndi Mills

Admittedly the Queen of Typos, Cyndi Mills strives for none, but one or two always seems to slip in. She apologizes! Over the last 27 years Cyndi has had the opportunity to move around the country with her husband, Scott and their four children. Having lived in Chilliwack, Edmonton, London, and Petawawa. She stumbled into the world of journalism by accident – looking for a career that could give her the flexibility to work from home to be with her children and support her husband's military career. Cyndi is also a military parent as her two oldest children are in the military. Raising her third and fourth teenagers, she tries to keep sane by walking, gardening, writing, and spending time with her family while running Canadian Military Family Magazine.
