Capt Nichola Goddard.
I join with everyone else in expressing my deepest sympathies for the family of Captain Nichola Goddard. The death of any soldier is tragic. The fact that she was serving our country in the interest of preserving peace is of minor consolation to her family.
It is a fact that if we are going to allow women to serve in our military in fighting capacities, there will be female soldiers killed in action.
It is my hope that the death of Capt Nichola Goddard isn't a) used to justify a withdrawal from Afghanistan or b) used to reopen the debate on women serving in our military.
As with all our soldiers killed in action, wherever it may be, my thoughts and prayers are with her family.
