    Sgt Diop, KIA yesterday was aged 40. He was a former paratrooper who had later on transfered to a Transportation unit. Afghanistan was his tenth deployement. He was a father of six.
  6. Very sad.

    After 9 deployments, being 40, and with 6 kids, he'd more than done his bit. I hope the French government look after his wife and kids.

  7. Seconded RIP
