Which Ex Cadet Said What? When? Why?

 

“Afghanistan is a war zone,”

***

“It is a reminder to all of us that in this wonderful country of ours anything is possible if you dream big and are prepared to put in the work to achieve great things.”

***

“In brackets they said ‘cold.’ I’ve got all my woolies and my Canadian Olympic mittens. I’m very excited about this opportunity. It’s a country I’ve not been to before.”

**

“According to what my mother tells me, I used to dress up in old fatigues and run around with a helmet on,”

***

“It was the most dominating performance by a RMC taekwondo team over West Point in our history — 6-1,” he recalled. “I beat their best fighter in the second match. Their morale dropped right there.”

***

“The flying is more advanced and much more fun as well.”

***

“Can one person make a difference? I hope I have answered this with a resounding yes,”

***

“I had a very satisfying and rewarding career doing work that I enjoyed. I never made it to high rank (retired as a LCdr) or to management levels (was an Engineer 5 all 23 civilian years), but I was able to hone my engineering skills problem solving on very interesting machinery plants. RMC provided me with an excellent education and sound basis for a career in a discipline other than that of my degree. I always doubted that I would have graduated from a civilian university because the small RMC class sizes provided such a personal learning experience.”

***

“When people like us put $20 million-plus of private money into recognizing Canada’s aviation heritage, as a taxpayer I’d like people in government to encourage and assist them when they can,”

***

“If you issue a code of conduct, then it’s assumed you have some kind of legitimacy also. This falls within the domain of propaganda. The insurgents want to occupy the intellectual space and also the operational space by offering themselves as an alternative to the government. They want people to believe they’re better than us, that they’re the best option for Afghans.”

***

“It felt like I never left, and I was quite happy to relive some memories as I walked around. The human mind has this tendency to just remember the good times,”

***

“When this all happened, I wasn’t thinking of a medal, I wasn’t trying to be brave. I was just thinking of saving that girl.”
