27-year-old Capt. Matthew Dawe was one of the highest-ranking Canadians to die in Afghanistan to that point and was remembered as a dedicated soldier and platoon commander.
He died the same day his son turned two.
Matthew hailed from a family that saw his father and three brothers also serve in the military.
