Nanette's Song - Corporal Nanette Black

Corporal Nanette Black has served as a medic in Kandahar, helped orphans in Afghanistan, and lost fellow soldiers. One of the toughest moments was attending a ceremony on the tarmac at Kandahar airport. Nanette made it home safely and bravely volunteered for a second tour of duty last year. She's stationed at CFB Petawawa in Ontario. She's written a song to thank her family and friends for helping her get through some tough times, and joined us on Skype.
