On June 18, 2021, Master Corporal Maxime Blasco was awarded by the President of the Republic for “exceptional services”. For example, he saved the lives of two of his comrades during an anti-terrorism operation on June 14, 2019 in Mali. “Master Corporal Blasco had achieved something uplifting by showing incredible physical and mental courage that day”, explains the former navy commando, Louis Saillans

Wounded during this evacuation of June 14, he had promised not to return to the field. “He had said he didn’t want to leave his buddies behind. He also said he felt like he was doing something. They are sacrificing themselves against a real and persistent threat, a threat that is greater than them. This guy is a hero to me, but I also want to say: what is the distant vision of it all, we have to know where we are going “, add Louis Saillans, author of the book “War chief”.
