Cadet brass hears it first-hand from the boss
26946 OCdt Ian Saciuk – e-Veritas correspondent
The Commandant addressed the entire college discussing about different aspects of the school, but for the first time BGen Friday convened a meeting of the Cadet Wing Barslate as a separate group. Given the large amount of sway that these cadets have in the day-to-day activities of the college, it seemed prescient that BGen Friday would address this group as a separate entity.
“He made it quite clear that the actions of the senior cadets would determine the actions of those in the lower years.”
As was evident in the demeanor of the audience, this group of cadets looks forward to their critical responsibilities with open arms and minds.
The Commandant spoke concerning a number of issues, including the manner in which the senior cadets of the institution influence the morale of those cadets junior to them. He made it quite clear that the actions of the senior cadets would determine the actions of those in the lower years.
When BGen Friday mentioned that it would be a mere 8 months until many of those present in the room would be able to walk under the Memorial Arch as graduates, many of those in the room tried their best to suppress a smile.
As always, the Commandant’s words were prescient and most helpful for those of us in our final year.
