Canada's troops in Afghanistan are starting to come home after serving for years in combat mode in the beleaguered country.
As family and friends welcome home the military there is a retired "warrior" as he calls himself who is glad to see the troops come home as well.
Retired Major-General Richard Rohmer -- arguably the most decorated citizen in Canada -- tells Bayshore Broadcasting News, he's had a real problem putting his mind around what we were doing in Afghanistan in the first place.
Rohmer -- who lives in Collingwood -- suggests that question has bothered a lot of people over the years.
The celebrated soldier, who is also a lawyer and accomplished author says it certainly was time for our troops to come home and to remove us from a kind of war which really defies rationale as to why we were there.
