Class of ’89: Movin’ on up!


Traditionally, all new General and Flag Officers (GOFO) are presented a scroll from the Governor General;  it is much like a commissioning scroll. It certainly signifies a huge career accomplishment by those receiving this scroll.

A GOFO scroll ceremony ‎ was held on 14 May at Rideau Hall.

At the time of this writing we do not have the complete list from this ceremony, however, we are aware that four members of the Class of 1989 are now part of this  GOFO group. They are: 16733 Michel Lalumiere, 16777 Simon Page, 16642 Steve Cadden and 16816 Carl Turenne.


They join classmates, 16888 MGen Al Meinzinger; 16707 RAdm Darren Hawco – 16975 BGen soon to be MGen Omer Lavoie; and RMCC commandant, 16855 BGen Sean Friday,
