173 new officers march off the parade square & through the Memorial Arch

RMC celebrates commissioning of 173 new officers

Article by WJO

173 RMC cadets were commissioned in an impressive ceremony at the Royal Military College of Canada this past Friday, May 18.

On a bright sunny morning with a bit of a cool breeze – ideal for those on parade – Lieutenant General Paul Wynnyk, the Commander of the Canadian Army representing the Chief of the Defence Staff head-lined the military dignitaries in attendance.

Other senior officers spotted in the pre-parade procession included: the Commander of the Royal Canadian Navy, Vice-Admiral Ron Lloyd; the Commander of the Royal Canadian Air Force Lieutenant General Al Meinzinger; and Commander, Canadian Special Operations Forces Command (CANSOFCOM) Major-General Peter Dawe; Major-General J.S.S.D.Fortin, commander of 1st Canadian Division; Brigadier-General Jennie Carignan, Chief of Staff Army Operations; Brigadier-General Michel Lalumière, Director-General Air Force Development; and Brigadier-General Virginia Tattersal, Deputy Commander Military Personnel Generation/Canadian Defence Academy.

All these senior officers took part in presenting commissioning scrolls.

A nice touch too was seeing a number of the soon-to-be officers receive their commission from their military relatives and / or friends. A special memory from both sides of the hand-shake.

A long-time tradition at RMC is the choosing by the graduates of two honourary graduates.

Honourary graduates are people who hold a special place in the hearts of the graduating class of 2018. The two honorary graduates receive a certificate from the graduating class and earn the privilege to march off the parade square with them.

This year, the honorary graduates are (L) Warrant Officer Chuck Ansell, the 7 Squadron Senior non-commissioned officer, and (R)Mr Tomasz Deren, who is the Strength and Conditioning Coordinator of the Physical Education Department.

The speeches were kept to a minimum which is always appreciated especially by those on parade and those in the crowd.

Having said that, the address given by Lieutenant General Wynnyk was straight to the point and covered all the bases. There was no doubt that the ‘173’ got the message on what is expected of them and what lies ahead.

The Commandant, BGen Bouchard was his usual straight-talking self and caught the attention of everyone when he said words to the effect, “Graduating from RMC is not easy and was not intended to be.”

He applauded ALL of the graduates for attaining the passing level in ALL four pillars.

Padre, Liam Thomas

For the second day in a row, the senior padre at the college, Major Liam Thomas gave a well thought out invocation / blessing that was fitting for the occasion.

We have had the privilege of  attending a number of these graduating parades. The one portion that causes us to pause and reflect is when the fourth year cadets holding parade positions hand over the parade to the next senior class and join the graduates along with the 4th year band members.

The Class of 2019 leadership appear to be more than willing to take on the responsibility of leading the Wing come the next term. Much is expected of them.

The main event, of the morning, from our perspective is being at the Memorial Arch when the Class marches out as a group for the last time. A lot of thoughts went through this old head especially when we saw them ‘march in’ four years earlier. We interacted with many of them throughout that time. Truly some mixed emotions.

Hats off to CWO Rob Keating, Training Wing Sergeant Major and his assistants for setting the stage for a well turned out parade. The results were obvious that they all gave their damnedest.

    Congratulations to all Graduates of 2018. You have selected a widely diverse field of military occupations as your career choices; although, personally I would have been more impressed if more of you had chosen to become Armoured Officers.
    You received a powerful message from Senator Joe Day. Work hard to do your damnedest ! !
    Enjoy your careers and be strong servant leaders. Serve and lead those who serve you, and always be the leaders Canada expects you to be.
    When in Ottawa, join us on any first Wednesday of the month except August.
    Again – CONGRATS !
    Félicitations à tous les diplômés de 2018. Vous avez choisi un domaine très diversifié des professions militaires comme choix de carrière; Cependant, personnellement, j’aurais été plus impressionné si davantage d’entre vous avaient choisi de devenir des officiers blindés.
    Vous avez reçu un puissant message du sénateur Joe Day. Travaillez dur pour faire votre damné! !
    Profitez de vos carrières et soyez de solides leaders serviteurs. Servez et dirigez ceux qui vous servent et soyez toujours les leaders que le Canada attend de vous.
    À Ottawa, joignez-vous à nous le premier mercredi du mois, sauf en août.
    Encore une fois – CONGRATS!

    As someone who coordinated parades, participated in parades, and attended a wide selection of parades during my 35 year military career, my hat is off to CWO Keating on an excellent Graduation Parade. Well done, Chief!!

    Col (Ret) Houghton,
    Thank you very much for the kind words but I couldn’t have done it without the other NCMs in Training Wing and all the people working behind the scenes (too many to name). Most important of all is of course the graduating class of 2018 and the N/OCdts on parade. A little bit of “motivation” and appeal to their sense of pride from me, combined with their hard work and effort ensured this parade was a memorable one. I am glad you enjoyed it!

    Col (Ret) Houghton,
    Merci beaucoup pour ces bons mots mais, je n’aurais pas pu le faire sans les autres membres du rang de l’escadre d’entraînement et tous les gens qui travaillent dans les coulisses (trop nombreux pour les nommer). Le plus important de tous est évidemment la classe de 2018 et les élof sur la parade. Un peu de “motivation” et d’appel à leur sens de la fierté de moi, combiné avec leur travail acharné et leurs efforts ont assuré que ce défilé était mémorable. Je suis content que vous l’avez apprécié!
