Remembrance Day / Photograph
Operation ATHENA, Medical Clinic
Master Corporal Anouk Beaudet (left) tending to a young Afghan girl suffering from a burn, with the help of Captain Hélène LeScelleur a free medical clinic run by Afghan, Canadian and American medical and dental personnel in Spin Boldak, Afghanistan.
The photograph was taken by Corporal Simon Duchesne, three months after a roadside bombing that broke LeScelleur’s pelvic bone and wounded everyone in her vehicle. Cut off from the rest of the convoy, she carried a wounded man 200 metres to safety, then stood guard all night, anticipating a Taliban attack. The incident left LeScelleur with serious psychological trauma.
