    March 8th 2009 we lost Trooper Marc Diab

    Trooper Marc Diab ( AKA DirtyLeb ) was a member of the Royal Canadian Dragoons. On March 8th 2009 Marc was on patrol in Afghanistan, Kandahar province. The armoured vehicle that he was in was hit by an IED. Marc was the 112th Canadian soldier to die in Afghanistan. He was just 22 years old and only weeks away from coming home to his family.

    I urge all Jeep Kings members, that on March 8th , please take a moment to remember this man and give our respect.

    To the Diab family , Marc will never be forgotten by the members on this site. He made an impact in our lives and will always be in our thoughts and prayers.

    4 years already? It really feels like yesterday we were standing by the highway of heroes. That just proves Marc won't be forgotten.

    RIP hero, and God bless you Diab family.

    Yep, so many emotions this past year working on the build and especially in the last few months as things really started coming together.

    I had the opportunity to view "If I Should Fall" for the first time last week. Seeing some of Marc's fellow soldiers talking about him was awesome, the things he would do for others and how his death affected them but they were not able to grieve because they had to return to the job at hand. Really puts things in perspective.

    Some pretty powerful scenes in the documentary.

    RIP Marc, we will never forget.
