Operation Fallen.

Grieving the loss of a loved one is never easy for Forces families. However, having the support of the military and Canadian communities help. Together We Stand wanted to show the people closest to those who were lost that Canadians think of them and lend their support during such a difficult time. We put the word out on our social media channels asking for messages of support, and the community delivered.

Taking these messages of support, encouragement and love, we incorporated them into flags to honour their memory and sacrifice, sending them to their families and the crew they worked alongside.
We honour their memory and will never forget their sacrifice.

Master Sailor Duane Earle.

On Dec 15, 2020, the active search for Master Sailor Duane Earle, a boatswain aboard HMCS Winnipeg, was tragically concluded. Sadly, he was not found. The ship’s crew now begins their journey home, and our hearts remain with his loved ones. Let’s show that together, Canadians stand with them.

Cpl. James Choi.

During a training exercise with the 3rd Battalion PPCLI at CFB Wainwright, Cpl. James Choi of the Royal Westminster Regiment sustained a gunshot wound at approximately 10 p.m. on Oct. 30. He sadly succumbed to his injuries the following day—another incalculable loss for the Canadian Armed Forces.

Captain Jennifer Casey.

On May 17th, 2020, tragedy struck during what was supposed to be the final flight of the Snowbirds’ cross-country tour to recognize the efforts of Canadians amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
