Capt. Dave Beatty and Sadiq Ibrahim used to hang on each other's words.

The pair spent nearly 9 months together in Afghanistan where Ibrahim landed a job as Beatty's interpreter. Friday they stood side-by-side for the first time in two years, after deciding to meet up on the occasion of the National Day of Honour.

"Hopefully when this thing's over we can get out of here and grab a coffee," Beatty said.
