2018 COLONEL / CAPTAIN (NAVY) PROMOTIONS, APPOINTMENTS AND RETIREMENTS

A week or so ago thanks to a dear friend we obtained a copy of the CANFORGEN detailing 2018 COLONEL / CAPTAIN (NAVY) PROMOTIONS, APPOINTMENTS AND RETIREMENTS. The list is exhaustive and we certainly recognize a lot of names with a connection to the ‘military colleges’. We were hoping to cherry pick those names from the list. Time was our enemy. Consequently, we have posted posted ALL the names.  Enjoy.
