‘Freedom depends on these guys’…
By Laura Stradiotto – Sudbury Star19863 Lieutenant (N) Lyn L Kingsley (RRMC ‘95)

Claire Kingsley didn’t sleep much the first month her daughter started her 6 1/2-month mission in Afghanistan.
Her voice trembles when she thinks about Canada’s past and present sacrifices. “Our freedom depends on these guys,” she said, from her home in Val Therese. “These young soldiers are our future veterans. They’re out there doing what our grandparents did in the Second World War.”

While her father didn’t serve in the Second World War, her daughter, Lt.(N) Lyn Kingsley, 36, has been stationed in Kandahar working as a social worker, counselling Canadian and American soldiers. Among other duties, she must attend every ramp ceremony and be prepared to help anyone who breaks down. “She’s been in the military forever it seems, right out of high school,” said Claire, her mother. “She’s a strong girl.”

Her daughter grew up in Valley East, attended College Notre-Dame and belonged to the 2nd Irish Regiment before going to the Royal Military College in Kingston and Royal Roads University in British Columbia.
