Message from Peter MacKay, former Minister of National Defence
Canada’s Special Operations Forces members are in my estimation world class and second to none in what they offer when it comes to our security and defence interests, yet their story is seldom told & even less understood by our citizens. They represent our most significant and deployable military contribution when it comes to Global security. Our specially selected soldiers stand shoulder to shoulder in capability, lethality and effectiveness with those of our closest allies who operate in the most dangerous and deadly places. This respect and recognition among the world best in the SOF community is deserved and earned only at great cost and unwavering commitment. Most importantly, they are in the sacred circle of trust & confidence of this elite regiment of allied warriors who are tasked with the most challenging missions both at home and abroad. Similar to our Olympians in their adherence to excellence, training, performance, purpose & pride, minus the cheering public adulation. They seek none. Their accomplishments & medals are known only to a few.
Blackstone offers the men, woman & their families, who have served our country so valiantly & selflessly, a gathering point for support & re-enforcement. Their perseverance and dignity in an ever evolving and volatile world is an enormous burden to carry. I whole heartedly endorse their efforts & activities. Their service and sacrifice for Canada and Canadians has earned eternal appreciation & the debt and gratitude of a grateful Nation.
