School welcomes hero home

In the eyes of the students at St. Clare CES, Major Charles Jansen is a returning hero. Last Thursday, he visited the Woodbridge school to talk to the kids about his recent 15-month mission, which included a 10-month tour of duty in Afghanistan’s volatile Kandahar province. Jansen was greeted by cheers from the primary students assembled in the gym. Following the major’s lead, some saluted when the national anthem was played.
