Chief of the Defence Staff Statement on the loss of Master Corporal Alfred Barr
“This afternoon it hit hard to learn of the tragic loss of Master Corporal Alfred Barr, a Search and Rescue Technician from 435 Transport and Rescue Squadron at 17 Wing Winnipeg, during a training incident near Yorkton, Saskatchewan.
“I would like to offer my sincerest sympathies to Master Corporal Barr’s family and friends, as well as the Search and Rescue community during this difficult time.
“Every year, our Search and Rescue Squadrons and Technicians conduct thousands of daring exercises and real-life missions to keep Canadians safe. This is not easy work. Today’s loss is a reflection of that selflessness that characterizes their profession, as told in their motto:
“That others may live.”
