21991 Paul Hungler on SLOWPOKE 2 Refueling at RMCC

‘Definitely not a slow-poke on the basketball floor’

Article by: 27182 Officer Cadet (IV) Carmen Kiltz

Since 1985, The SLOWPOKE 2 nuclear research reactor at RMCC has been a vital scientific resource for the Canadian Armed Forces.

Today, with over 35 years of use, the fuel supply for the reactor is in need of replacement. With a hefty cost, the intent to replace the fuel assembly is no small ordeal. To top that off, the current intention is to have the reactor refuelled by 2017.

I had the opportunity to speak with Maj. Paul Hungler, a former professor and researcher of the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering. He offered me information on his background and shone some light upon the question of refueling the reactor.

RMC Foundation, Major Sponsor of International Conference on CANDU Fuel

Article by: 27182 Officer Cadet (IV) Carmen Kiltz

Between August 15 and 18, RMC was playing host to this premier event on Canada deuterium–uranium (CANDU) Fuel. Delegates from Argentina. Austria, China, Hong Kong, India, Nigeria, South Korea, Romania, Sweden, the United States, and of course Canada brought their expertise to the gathering with the goal of helping “pave the way into the future” in the CANDU fuel industry.

This is the second year in a row where RMC has hosted this conference- the last time being in September of 2013. It was also the 13th Conference for this Group.

One of the major sponsors for the high profile conference was the RMC Foundation.

As conference chair, Dr. Paul Chan of RMCC has a strong nuclear industry experience.

Golden photos from the summer of ’16 by Carmen Kiltz

Golden photos from the summer of ’16 by Carmen Kiltz

Anyone who has spent any time in Ontario over the past few months will attest to the extreme hot weather.

e-Veritas summer writer / photographer extraordinaire, OCdt Carmen Kiltz  took her camera around the peninsula last week to capture forour archives what things looked like during the ‘dog days’ of August 2016.

Visitors to the college in recent years will be familiar with all the construction work being done around the Sawyer and Girouard buildings. The good news is that there is light at the end of the tunnel.

What stands out in most of the photos is the yellow grass (not to be mistaken for golden) and dried out conditions in many of the areas.

27182 OCdt (IV) Carmen Kiltz: the end of my Summer OJE with e-Veritas

Posted by rmcclub on August 21st, 2016

Letter to the Editor…the end of my Summer OJE with e-Veritas

This letter is in appreciation to Bill Oliver, editor of e-Veritas and my “boss” for the past two months. Bill is very modest and I am not sure if he will let this letter be published, but I will do my best to convince him as I think the readers should get a glimpse at who is behind all the hard work that goes into making e-Veritas a success. This is from the perspective of a fourth-year RMC student (myself) however I am sure that the many cadets whom have worked for Bill share a similar view.

First off, however, I’d like to give you just a bit of background information.

Bill joined the RCAF in 1958 and eventually became a Physical Education Recreation Instructor (PERI). In 1982 he was commissioned from the ranks (CFR) while serving at RMC as a Master Warrant Officer (MWO).

 

In all, Bill held three different RMC positions including: Senior PERI, Physical Education Officer, and Director of Athletics. He was a 1991 recipient of the J.P. Loosemore Award for exemplifying the best in university sports in terms of ethics, integrity, and honesty. He is the only RMC staff member to date to be recognized for this 40 year old Ontario Universities Athletics (OUA) award. It is evident from working with him that he continues to uphold such moral characteristics.

The Saint John, New Brunswick native has had a very enriching journey through life thus far.

And now I would like to share with you my letter to Bill.

Bill, despite your modesty, please publish this letter!

NOTE 1 from Editor: After all the outstanding work contributed to e-Veritas by Officer Cadet Kiltz, how could we refuse her request.

Summer of ’16 no picnic for OCdts moving into II Year

Posted by rmcclub on August 21st, 2016

Summer of ’16 no picnic for OCdts moving into II Year

The Basic Military Officer Qualification (BMOQ) is the Canadian Armed Forces’ basic training program for future officers.

The course is divided into two seven-week modules. Module 1 focuses on basic military discipline and skills such as drill, weapons training and first aid. Module 2 focuses on leadership techniques and basic military planning skills. Both modules have a heavy physical fitness component.

Most OCdts going into II Year completed Module 2 this summer. Following are two first-hand accounts from 27829 OCdt (II) Ortega, 1 Sqn; and 27821 NCdt (II) Mackin, 11 Sqn on their take of the the summer of ’16.

Parting Words of Gratitude

Posted by rmcclub on August 21st, 2016

Parting Words of Gratitude

Excerpt from the 1952 Review

As we are members of the first class to graduate since the reopening of the College in 1948, we have seen a great many of the difficulties and frequent changes and have realized the great worries and responsibility in fathering the rebirth or R.M.C. But no one of us knows fully the extent of the headaches which were involved-even in convincing the proper people that the College should be opened at all. We are prone to criticize mistakes which we see; but we fail to view these mistakes in the light of many more successes which are taken for granted.

We cannot leave R.M.C. without expressing our heartfelt gratitude to all the members of the Staff and the R.M.C. Club who were instrumental in putting and keeping the College on its feet despite our sporadic interference. In particular, we wish to direct our thanks to the Commandant, Brigadier D. R. Agnew; the Director of Studies, Colonel W. R. Sawyer; the former Staff-Adjutant, Lieutenant-Colonel E. G. Brooks; and the R.S.M., W.O. I. J. E. Coggins. These men have all been elected honorary members of our graduating class.

Perhaps the Finest Leader Professional Development Institution–the Battalion

Perhaps the Finest Leader Professional Development Institution–the Battalion

By: Thomas Rozman

With now an extended career that comprises approaching three decades in the Army and an almost same period in civil sector some observations regarding professional development of leaders of organizations come to mind. One is the institution of the Army battalion as a leader development experience.

I do realize that other perspectives may be current in the forum. But I have noted few organizations that will take the developing or practicing leader through an experience that integrates so many functions and responsibilities with real time consequences of performance than the battalion.

Queen’s University Perspective – 1948: The Return of the Royal Military College to Cadet Training

Posted by rmcclub on August 21st, 2016

 

The Return of the Royal Military College to Cadet Training

By

Dr. R. C. Wallace, C.M.G., Principal and Vice-Chancellor, Queen’s University

(Excerpt from 1948 Review)

It has been, I feel sure, a very difficult problem for the Department of National Defence to decide how to proceed, in the light of the experience of the war, with the training of officers for the Army. So much is new that the old methods and old institutions had to stand on their merits, and not on tradition. But it was a very encouraging announcement that was made by the Minister of National Defense on May 1st when he stated that the Royal Military College would open for training of cadets in September 1948. Encouraging, that is to say, to the people of Kingston and those who have to do with Queen’s University. For we had learned to know R.M.C., its staff and its cadets, over many years.

There had been times of rivalry, even of feeling; but underneath it all was a sense of deep respect and understanding. For we on our side have had succession of specially recommended students to come to Queen’s for their final year of our B.Sc. course, in electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, civil engineering, and they have acquitted themselves with high credit. They brought to the campus as well that characteristic bearing and atmosphere which is hard to define, but which is very familiar to all who know the Royal Military College. In a word, they added something of value to our university life.
