Daybreak tags along with the B.C. Dragoons!

On the weekend, Daybreak host Chris Walker was invited to tag along with the British Columbia Dragoons.

He was embedded with 41 Alpha company on a reconnaissance mission in the hills above Summerland.

They started in a soccer park in the town centre, and the mission was to fly helicopter into the hils to secure a strategically important bridge, thereby preventing the enemy from overrunning the Okanagan Valley.

Their "enemies" had no idea we were coming, but Chris and his comrades were ambushed by hamburger soup at the end of their mission.
