Warrant Officer Thierry Jardry was seriously injured during the bombing of the Bouaké camp in 2004, in Côte d'Ivoire.

He has remained haunted by these events ever since.

The trial in absentia of the three pilots, which has just ended in Paris, has not allowed to appease the still alive injuries.For Lines of Defense, Franck Alexandre met Thierry Jardry in Charente, where he retired after having spent more than thirty years in the Navy troops.
