At the age of forty-one, Trevor Greene, a journalist and a reservist in the Canadian Army, deployed to Kandahar with the 1st Battalion PPCLI Battle Group. On March 4th, 2006, while meeting with village elders in a remote village in Kandahar Province, Greene removed his helmet out of respect, confident that a centuries-old pact would protect him from harm. Without warning, a teenage boy under the influence of the Taliban came up behind Greene and swung a rusty axe deep into his skull, nearly splitting his brain in two.
Trevor's fiancee, Debbie, was initially told that he would not live. When he survived she was told that he would never come out of his coma, let alone be able to move on his own. But Debbie never left Trevor's side, and after years of rehabilitation, setbacks, and crises, Trevor learned to talk and move again. In July 2010, he stood up at his own wedding, Debbie at his side, and his daughter, Grace, carrying their rings down the aisle as their flower girl.
March Forth is a remarkable story of love, told in two voices: Trevor's, up until the attack that changed their lives; and Debbie's, as she works tirelessly to rehabilitate the man she loves. Together, Trevor and Debbie have written the next chapter in their remarkable story.close this panel
