BOUILLETTE’S STORY Sgt. Broughtlette said he went to Afghanistan in March, 2013, as part of an expedition into a mountainous region of Afghanistan known as the Kunar Province.
He was part of a Canadian-led team tasked with training local forces and fighting off the Taliban.
Bougille said he returned to Canada in April 2015, where he has lived since, living in Calgary.
Boughtlette’s father, an infantry officer, died in 2011, when he was killed in combat.
Sgt Broughlette was stationed in Afghanistan in 2014, and was wounded twice in the same month.
He’s since recovered from both wounds.
He says his unit was part on a mission to find an al Qaeda commander who had been hiding out in Afghanistan, but his team was shot at and he lost his arm.
Brawllette said a team of Afghan soldiers and police officers who had infiltrated the compound of the al Qaeda leader in Kabul came under fire from Afghan soldiers, and that he was wounded in the leg.

BOUGHLETTE SAYS HE WAS ON THE FRONT LINE OF A FIGHT FOR JUSTICE Sgt. Steven Broughllette has been on the frontline of the war in Afghanistan since March, and says he has a strong sense of justice for his brother and fellow soldier.
“I can only imagine the pain and suffering that they went through,” he said.
“It’s been almost six years now, and we’re still fighting, and they still have to fight.”
He said his brother was on a team with the other soldiers to find the leader of al Qaeda, and the two were killed when a mortar shell struck the compound.
Sgt Steve Broughleton said he and his fellow soldiers were shot at, and were left to die from their wounds.
“They had no weapons, they had no medical supplies, and it was a pretty horrific experience,” Broughley said.
He added that his brother had an amazing sense of humour.
“When you see a little bit of him, and you look up at the sky, it reminds you of how lucky he was to be alive. “
“You see all of these amazing people and he was just a big part of it.” “
Sgt. Steve Boughleton says his brother went to war in support of the Canadian military. “

Sgt Steven Bougall said his mother, a member of the Royal Regiment of Canada, and sister, Marie, died when they were killed during the fight.
He also lost his leg in the battle.
“My mum was a soldier and my sister was an engineer.
They were the last of our family to go to war.
It was her last year in the military, and she was there to protect me.
I just think of them as heroes,” Bougllt said.
