Carole Richer with her son MCpl Danny Losier

A military mother’s encouragement and pride

Gatineau, Quebec — “I always support him. I’m not crazy about it, but I support him,” says Carole Richer of her son’s military career. Master Corporal Danny Losier of 5e Régiment d’artillerie légère du Canada completed his first deployment in December, 2019, arriving home just in time for Christmas. It was a trying time for Carole, but this mom would never stand in the way of her son.
