Remembrance

book cover image One Soldier

Dillon Hillier, a corporal with the Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry, returned home from a tour in Afghanistan and started up a normal life. At least, that was the plan.

But when ISIS insurgents began attacking local populations in Iraq and elsewhere, Hillier, a long-time soldier, felt he had to join in the action, so he sold his truck, lied to his parents about where he was going and became the first Canadian to volunteer to fight ISIS in Iraq.

One Soldier tells his story.
