Mark left July 12 from CFB Comox on Vancouver Island for Europe, picking up the other Canadian teams from across the country along the way. Check out the commemorative arm band identifying Mark’s team, Marine Pacific Esquimalt “MARPAC.” There are 15 teams from across Canada travelling to Holland for the March, Mark’s excited to be in one of them!

Mark arrived in Lille, France on Thursday night (July 12), and was greeted by a police escort (isn’t it nice to travel with the US Ambassador)?
