A Saskatchewan mother whose son was killed while serving in Afghanistan has been named the National Silver Cross Mother for 2011 by the Royal Canadian Legion.
Patricia Braun of Raymore, Sask, will represent all bereaved mothers at the Remembrance Day ceremony in Ottawa on Nov. 11.
Braun's son, Cpl. David Braun, was killed by a suicide bomber in Afghanistan in 2006.
