Richardson was 23 years old when he left for a seven-month tour of duty in April of 2010. “For me… it was difficult leaving my friends and family. I know for many soldiers that I was overseas with, you always try to reassure people back home, because really the stress that’s put on family and friends is quite high, obviously,” Richardson told the Kitchener Post. Today, he continues to serve in the Reserve with the Royal Highland Fusiliers of Canada.

“Mark has always been very humble about his mission in Afghanistan,” says broker-owner Angela Asadoorian. “We are grateful for his outstanding service to his country and proud to have Mark among our ranks at Royal LePage Crown.”
