I am sad to announce that Sergeant Jacques F. Cartier, squad leader in G Company of the 357th Infantry Regiment, has passed away on October 20th 2014... Sergeant Cartier was wounded by a German machine gun bullet on January 11th 1945 at Sonlez, Luxembourg.

In the near future, I will build and place a memorial with the names of the brave men who were killed and wounded in action at Sonlez, Luxembourg in which a part of my family stays regularly... The brave Tough Ombres, including Sergeant Cartier, will never be forgotten!
