you want to find one of the happiest SFOR soldiers and eat a
delicious French meal, do not waste your time simply go and
meet Master Sgt. Patick Lapierre from the French
Air Force. He arrived last January into Bosnia and Hercegovina
(BiH) and was posted as the commander of the French Air Detachment
Dining Facility at Sarajevo Airport. He is responsible for seven
other military personnel and 14 locals. "My days here start
and end picking up these local people from downtown to the airport.
Everyday it is a pleasure to laugh and sing French songs with
them," said Lapierre.
