Sergeant D’Anjou, a veteran of Afghanistan, serving as guide for the War Vigil. He refers to his comrades-in-arms as “family.”

Last Thursday, the final day to see the Afghanistan War Vigil in Quebec City, was besieged with heavy rain. The dismal atmosphere lent to the somber mood of the few visitors. I went to the Vigil with my wife Denyse and my grandson Alexander. Greeting visitors to the memorial wall was Sergeant D’Anjou, originally from Charlesbourg.
