HALIFAX - A Canadian soldier has been killed in a car crash near Blackstone, Va.

He's identified as Master Warrant Officer Michel Philippe Frechette of Windsor, N.S.

Military officials say Frechette was the lone occupant of a vehicle involved in a two-vehicle collision near Fort Pickett on Wednesday.

A member of the West Nova Scotia Regiment and the Land Force Atlantic Area chief cook, he was in Virginia as part of an advance party for a large annual exercise.

Virginia State Police are investigating the accident.

Just finished talking to the CO an hour ago.  MWO Frechette will be taken to Washington and flown to Toronto for the autopsy.  Then onwards to Halifax.  Funeral will be held Sat 23 Feb 08.  I'm not sure of the location, however anyone interested in the details can contact the West NSR Adjt at Pellerine.TL@forces.gc.ca for details.  I'll unfortunately be out of the Country on South Bound Trooper as of tomorrow night and I won't have access to a computer to update.  Both the Unit and the Navy will be involved in the ceremonies.

RIP Chief.

For those who don't know him, Mike Frechette was a CP02 in the Reg Force up until recently, not sure exactly when he retired from the Reg's.  The last I heard, he was working at the new Chief's and PO's Mess in Halifax (Juno Tower) when the place opened but that was a few years ago.  Prior to that he was posted to CFC Aldershot NS as the Camp KO.  An excellent man by all standards.

Condolences to his family, friends and loved ones.   :salute:

A mon ptit frere Michel

  On ne peut que constater combien la vie est fragile. Ton passage sur cette terre fut remarquable. Je sais qu'un jour nous serons reuni dans cet ocean cosmique, qu'est le ciel.

Je t'aime Francine xoxoxo....
