first_imgThe flags above the legislature are at half mast starting today, Sept. 5, out of respect for Warrant Officer Frank Robert Mellish of Truro who died Sunday in Afghanistan. “Our sympathies go out to Warrant Officer Mellish’s mother and father, his wife and sons, and the rest of his family and friends,” said Premier Rodney MacDonald. Warrant Officer Mellish and three other Canadian soldiers died fighting insurgent forces as the Canadians advanced on Taliban positions. The premier also extends sympathies and thoughts for Warrant Officer Mellish’s comrades — the men and women of the Canadian Forces carrying out their duty as part of the NATO mission in Afghanistan.last_img
