Originally from Sept-Îles, Québec, retired Military Police member Master Corporal André Girard served with the Canadian Armed Forces for 15 years. In September 2007, while deployed in Afghanistan, André was shot in the head during a military patrol in Kandahar Province, Afghanistan. His injury was serious and his recuperation and rehabilitation have been a long and challenging journey. He has worked hard to rehabilitate and has since medically released from the CAF. As a military veteran, André now serves as a member of Team Canada on the 2016 Invictus Games. At this year’s games, André competed in the indoor rowing competitions. André explains that next year will be ten years since he was injured in Afghanistan. “I want to show the world, not only did I survive my injury, but ten years later, I am hoping I will make the team again and go for gold on home soil.”
