Captain Paul Frank, a member of 28 Field Ambulance based in Ottawa Ontario, has been listed as Canada's 153rd Afghanistan War Casualty.
Captain Paul Frank died last February, while on leave during his operational tour from Afghanistan, of natural causes. General Walter Natynczyk said that the officer was considered on duty and a member of the Afghan mission when he died."Although his death came suddenly while on leave from his deployment in Afghanistan, he was still on duty and considered part of the mission, and therefore his death is no less important than any other CF member who served and died while in Afghanistan,” said Gen. Walter Natynczyk, chief of the defence staff, in a release.
Captain Frank's name will be added to the Fallen Canadians website and his name inscribed into the formal Book of Remembrance.
Captain Paul Frank is officially the 153rd Canadian military casualty of the Afghan War. One Diplomat and one journalist have also been killed.
