This day in Canadian Military History...

3 August 1777
The Battle of Oriskany is fought outside of Ft. Stanwix (Rome, N.Y.) as an American relief column is ambushed by Joseph Brant's Mohawks and the Loyalist troopers of the King's Royal Regiment of New York (stationed at Montreal).



3 August 1914
It is the last day of peace in Europe. At midnight tonight, Britain will be at war with Germany, setting in motion the events of the First World War. Canada, as a British colony, will at the same time automatically be at war.

 

3 Aug 2006

Cpl. Christopher Jonathan Reid, based in Edmonton with the 1st Battalion, Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry, was killed in a roadside bomb attack. Later the same day, Sgt. Vaughn Ingram, Cpl. Bryce Jeffrey Keller and Pte. Kevin Dallaire were killed by a rocket-propelled grenade as they took on militants around an abandoned school near Pashmul. Six other Canadian soldiers were injured in the attack. Sergeant Tower is recognized for valiant actions taken on August 3, 2006, in the Pashmul region of Afghanistan. Following an enemy strike against an outlying friendly position that resulted in numerous casualties, Sergeant Tower assembled the platoon medic and a third soldier and led them across 150 metres of open terrain, under heavy enemy fire, to render assistance. On learning that the acting platoon commander had perished, Sergeant Tower assumed command and led the successful extraction of the force under continuous small arms and rocket-propelled grenade fire. Sergeant Tower’s courage and selfless devotion to duty contributed directly to the survival of the remaining platoon members. Sgt Tower will later be awarded the Star of Military Valour.
