Pte. Alexandre Peloquin
KANDAHAR AIRFIELD, Afghanistan -- A 20-year-old Canadian soldier was killed Monday morning on a foot patrol when an explosive device detonated southwest of Kandahar City.
Pte. Alexandre Peloquin, based at Canadian Forces Base Valcartier near Quebec City, arrived in Afghanistan for his first tour of duty only six weeks ago.
Let us never forget. May he rest in peace.
