Fabien Willm

French Soldier, Fabien Willm, age 43, died on January 20, 2012, at a military base in Kapisa Province, Afghanistan.

A renegade Afghan soldier shot dead four French unarmed troops participating with the Afghans in a sporting event. Another 15 French soldiers were wounded. The attacker was arrested. The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack. 

Fabien was a Chief Warrant Officer. He had 25 years of service in the military. 

Pray for Fabien
He was born in Strasbourg and first joined the military in 1986 as a cadet. He had previously served in the Central African Republic, Guyana, French Polynesia, Chad, Bosnia, Croatia, Kosovo and Côte d'Ivoire. He has also previously served several tours in Afghanistan. 

Military officials stated that he had a strong technical knowledge and was admired by his comrades. They also stated he had a strong work ethic. 

Fabien is survived by many loving friends and relatives including his wife and child.

Let us pray to God the Father, Jesus, all of the saints and all of the angels that Fabien Willm is in heaven. Let us pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen
