CFB Valcartier: A soldier of the 3 R22eR plays the hero


Monday, October 3 did not go like the others for Corporal Karl Bougie. The 30-year-old soldier rescued a driver of an overturned semi-trailer truck on the Jean-Lesage Highway.

As usual, the infantryman of the 3rd Battalion, Royal 22e Régiment (3 R22eR) was returning home after work eastbound on Highway 20 when he saw the loaded truck attempt to avoid an impact and capsize in the median.
