WEBSITEThe killing of two Canadian Forces members this week, in separate incidents, hits very close to home for those at 19 Wing Comox. Base spokesperson Captain Trevor Reid says Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent, who was run down in a Quebec hit-and-run attack, served as a military fire fighter at the Comox base in the 1990’s.

Meanwhile 19 Wing Comox has substantially beefed up their security regime at the base, although Captain Reid would not go into detail on the heightened security measures, only to say they will be in place for some time.
