CPL David Robert William Braun
Birth: Aug. 3, 1979, Canada
Death: Aug. 22, 2006, Afghanistan


Corporal with 2nd Battalion, Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry based in Shilo, Manitoba. Aged 27. Predeceased by his father Blaine (1994). Survived by his mother Patty, his sister Daina, and his brothers Michael and Chris.

He was killed, and three others wounded, when a suicide bomber struck their re-supply convoy while travelling in Kandahar City, Afghanistan. A resulting fire destroyed two convoy vehicles.

He was the 27th soldier to die since Canada deployed ground forces to Afghanistan in early 2002.

Recipient of Sacrifice Medal (posthumous)

Cpl Braun was raised in Raymore SK and worked in Watson SK before realizing his dream of joining the armed forces in February 2002. His mother recalled how, when home on leave, he used to go the school his hometown and talk to students about his work in the forces. He was so passionate about his job, she said, that he managed to hold the attention of a roomful of unruly kids.

More than 600 mourners gathered at the local school on Aug 31, 2006 for the funeral service.
