If you really want to talk about the heroic actions of one man this is one.

With total disregard for his own life and in keeping with the highest traditions of....

Bravery Decorations
Sergent Joseph André Danny Bouchard, M.B. Lachute, QC Medal of Bravery

Date of Instrument: 4/18/2002 Date of Presentation: 12/9/2002

On January 28, 2001, while working as a civilian police officer with the United Nations Mission in Kosovo, Sgt. Bouchard, then Cst., used his body to shield a severely beaten man from a vicious mob attack.

As ethnic tensions between Serbians and Albanians escalated in the city of Mitrovica, Civilian Police were called to assist other U.N. officers in dispersing an angry crowd.

While dealing with this incident, Sgt. Bouchard noted another group of some thirty Serbians viciously assaulting a man with cables and metal pipes. Sgt. Bouchard fought his way through the attacking crowd and lay on top of the bleeding victim to act as a shield.

Despite being assaulted and having a pistol fired near his head, Sgt. Bouchard remained with the victim until help arrived to escort the severely injured man to safety.

Dannybou, that is truly amazing though you may say what every heroism medal recipient has always said throughout history,

"I was only doing my job."

Thats something I would have never thought.

People like Danny epitomize good especially when confronting evil. I can only hope there was no long-term injuries that will affect you in later life. It’s people like you Danny who should be considered for patronage appointments by our federal government. Maybe you could step into Adrienne Clarkson shoes ones she gets the boot. For our American friends she is the Governor General. She represents the Queen. That’s all I will say on her. This tread is about Danny. Good for you Danny.

I pray to God...

...that people like this still exist.

Danny, you are a blessing.

Not so much mine as the one whose aid you provided.

Respect!
