Platoon leader killed
By Murray BREWSTER, The Canadian Press, Wed., June 4, 2008
Kandahar, Afghanistan -- A Canadian officer on his first tour in Afghanistan was killed yesterday in a prolonged firefight with Taliban militants who stubbornly clung to patches of arid farmland west of Kandahar.
Capt. Richard (Steve) LEARY, 32, was leading a foot patrol involving Canadian and Afghan soldiers when they were ambushed with small-arms fire around 9 a.m. local time.
A sporadic, half-hour running battle ensued. LEARY was hit as his soldiers were moving toward the cover of a safer position.
An air strike was called in and the insurgents were beaten back.
"Steve was what we in uniform are expected to be: he was a soldier and a leader," Col. Jamie Cade, the deputy commander of Canadian troops in Afghanistan, told reporters at Kandahar Airfield where LEARY was evacuated by helicopter.
Cade said medics and doctors struggled to save LEARY, but he was pronounced dead in hospital.
"Every death or injury is deeply painful to us, but it is a risk that we -- as members of the armed forces -- understand and assume as we work to bring peace and stability to a country torn apart by decades of war," he said in a prepared statement.
No other soldiers were hurt in the engagement.
The army would not say precisely where in the Panjwaii district the extended battle took place, citing operational security and the need to keep militants guessing about the damage they have inflicted.
LEARY, a platoon commander, served with 2nd Battalion, Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry based in Shilo, Manitoba
The Brantford native was married but had no children.
His loss is being felt keenly by his men, said Maj. Jay Janzen, a senior army spokesperson in Kandahar.
"When you lose a leader as effective as Capt. LEARY, as personable, it is difficult, but we're just thinking about (his) family right now," said Janzen.
LEARY was the second soldier in a month to die in an ambush. The last was Cpl. Michael Starker, a reservist and Calgary paramedic whose goodwill patrol was attacked within sight of a major Canadian forward operating base.
The May 6 attack happened in the restive Zhari district, which like Panjwaii has been a hotbed of militant activity and bomb-makers.
There have been 84 Canadians soldiers and one diplomat killed since the start of the Afghan war. The latest combat death came a day after four Canadian soldiers and an Afghan interpreter were wounded in two separate attacks, also in the Zhari district. Two of the soldier badly injured in Monday's attacks have been evacuated to U.S. military hospital in Germany for further treatment.
Canadian troops, as part of an evolving strategy in the counter-insurgency war, have been conducting more foot patrols, leaving behind the protection of their armoured vehicles to be more reassuring to wary Afghans, whom they're trying to win over.
"It's dangerous business, there's no question about that, but if we're not out there doing our jobs we'll never be successful," said Janzen.
