A soldier of the Belgian army was honored for his courage, strength of character and bravery. On 23 July, 2006, Master-Commander Van Cauwenberghe (brother of our E-Crane/Indusign colleague Filip) and his Italian colleague, Captain Punzo were under sniper fire in Lebanon.
Captain Punzo suffered serious injuries. Master-Commander Van Cauwenberghe brought his observer colleague to safety despite heavy fighting in the region. On September 12, 2008 a sign (medal) for courage and dedication will be granted to Master-Commander Marc Van Cauwenberghe. We are extremely thankful for the courage and service to country demonstrated by Master-Commander Marc Van Cauwenberghe.
