RMC mourns second grad killed in Afghanistan

July 9, 2007

Captain Matthew Dawe, a Royal Military College graduate, was one of 6 Canadian soldiers who died last week in a roadside bomb explosion in Afghanistan.  “Matt only graduated from here in 2004 and a lot of his professors are still here.  Every military death hits us in a certain way, but this one is different because we knew him.”  RMC does not provide cadets with combat training, but provides free university education to future military leaders.
