Statement: Statement from the family of Master Corporal Allan Stewart
PETAWAWA, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - April 13, 2007) - Allan was a kind,
loving, brave man. The kind of man anyone could be proud of and he was a
hero, my hero. He sacrificed his life for the sake of his others. Allan
was proud to be a soldier, and he was a good one too. He wanted to go to
Afghanistan, not because he wanted to be away from his family but
because he wanted to make a difference. He wanted to help the Afghan
people have some freedoms that we take for granted.
He was such a good man, an excellent father, husband, and my, and many
others, best friend. I am extremely proud of him for standing up for
what he believed in. I just wish he didn't have to come home so soon. He
will be deeply missed.
I would kindly ask that during this difficult time, as we grieve the
loss of a loved one, you would kindly respect our privacy.
His loving wife.
