Suicide Bomber Attacks
Mr. Roberts speaks about a couple of occasions where suicide bombers detonated themselves a little too close to their convoys, a situation where training becomes key in the ability to control a very tense environment.
Mr. Allan Roberts was born March 11, 1974 in Ottawa, Ontario. Always having the desire to be part of the Canadian Forces Mr. Roberts chose to join the Infantry Reserve Unit in Trenton, Ontario. During his time in the reserves, Mr. Roberts was given the opportunity to become part of the army and accept a deployment position to Bosnia. This experience allowed him to put his training to task and work on par with the Royal Canadian Dragoons holding rank of Master Corporal taking on the daily occupation of patrol and convoy escort. After Mr. Roberrt's deployment to Bosnia, he was once again accepted to deploy to Afghanistan under the same rank and occupation but in a more intense level of service and different cultural environment. After his deployment was complete, Mr. Roberts returned to Ottawa, Ontario. Mr. Roberts is now retired from the military
