In March of 2009, 22-year old Trooper Marc Diab of The Royal Canadian Dragoons was killed in Afghanistan when his vehicle struck an IED (Improvised Explosive Device). In the wake of his death, countless lives were changed forever. If I Should Fall tells the story of Marc's life through the accounts of those who loved him: his family, his comrades of D Squadron, and his beloved girlfriend.

Told in 13 chapters and going beyond the six o'clock news, viewers see the human face behind the
honour and sacrifice of Canadian soldiers.

Supported by an ensemble of renowned Canadian military experts, including retired Major General Lewis MacKenzie, Esprit De Corps Magazine's Scott Taylor, and author Captain Ray Wiss M.D., the film explores Canada's role in Afghanistan and the timeless tragedy of what it means to lose a loved one to war.

Featuring music by award-winning, Canadian artist Loreena McKennitt, If I Should Fall eloquently portrays the story of one, and in doing so, tells the story of many.

  • I am not one to moderate comments here, but if you can keep them appropriate and civil that would be appreciated. There are plenty of other media pieces you can use to garner debate if that is what you are looking for.

  • "Ever since he was 8 years old, he wanted to be a soldier"

    the ridiculous claim

    - at 8 years old, what do you know about right and wrong?
    - at 8 years old, so little did he know about the world and so little did he know why he even need to fight in the 1st place.

    wake up people... its just another war propaganda being drilled into OUR dumb thick skulls

    War and weapons are the signs that we are afraid of each other... they are the signs that we are NOT CIVILIZED AND NOT EDUCATED.

  • He should have stayed in Lebanon and tried to make it a democracy instead of being a christian bully to the majority there. And then he goes to north america and want to attack and torment the muslims in Afghanistan, no respect "bro".

    • @AfganMountaneer I don't think your comment makes any sense. you said he should have stayed in Lebanon and tried to make it a democracy. Well he went to afghanistan and he was trying to keep it a democracy. Im curious if you would be a taliban supporter if you lived under them. The taliban are the real bullies. When I was there they did a drive by shooting on a Afghan lady who ran a underground school for little girls in Panjwai.

    • @AfganMountaneer - And I have no respect for you either, you inhumane cunt. If I was any closer to you, I'd slit your throat from ear to ear.

      How DARE you disrespect this man. He was a REAL soldier, unlike the goat fucking, publically beheading, tormenting innocents that you support (the taliban).

      You call yourself a "mountaineer"? You're nothing but a keyboard warrior. You have done nothing to help democracy in your own country, so HOW DARE you disgrace this grunt.

  • He volountered to go and attack the most volnuorable people in the world, one of the poorest to. He knew this things. He figured it was risk free. But the Afghans are better on the battle field then the western soldiers. So he died a death he whanted to give inocent peoples. Why not mourn the dead inocent once?

    • @AfganBushWacker
      A taliban commander is walking along when he hears a voice from behind a sand dune, "One Sapper is better than ten taliban fighters!" The taliban commander is outraged by this cheek and sends his ten best fighters over, a few shots ring out and then a voice shouts out, "One Sapper is better then a hundred taliban fighters!" The enraged commander rustles up a hundered fighters and sends them over,...... a fire fights erupts and then after it has died down a v More..

    • @tjobtj0btj0b yeah I agree, but there is alot of terrorist sympathizers who would tell you different. The guys on here have some kind of sick love affair with the taliban and other tterrorist. They wish they where fighting along side them, but they cant becuase they are even more cowardly then the taliban who hide bombs in the dirt and wait until a soldier or some kid walks over it and then detonates it.
      Instead the cowards on liveleak just go around trolling becuase they don't got the balls t More..
