Dedicated to Nichola Goddard


            Far Forward is heard the Observer’s call
            From armoured turrets she views enemy ground,
            The Captain’s voice is fatally hit,
            Then the Radio echoes “my Sunray ’s down”
            

            Captain Nichola Kathleen Sarah Goddard, MSM (May 2, 1980 – May 17, 2006) 
            was the first female Canadian combat soldier killed in combat, and the 
            16th Canadian soldier killed in Canadian operations in Afghanistan.
