Maj.-Gen. 2861 Dan Loomis — 1929-2013

‘Valiant officer’ led army in Ottawa-Hull during FLQ Crisis

“Dan was a brilliant student and an honours graduate,” said Withers, “but he had no intention of joining the regular army. Those of us who were going into the regular army as opposed to the reserves were called to muster. An officer from army headquarters came and said ‘when you graduate all of you are going to the Korean War’ so Dan wasn’t in that line up. But when news got around the college that we were being posted, he hastened across to see if he could join.”

    Dan Loomis’s’actions on learning of the planned postings to units deploying to Korea would not have surprised my mother. They both attended Lisgar Collegiate in Ottawa, and she remembered him as keen as mustard about the prospect of a military life. She did say he seemed crestfallen when the Second War ended. She related these tales to me when Dan cropped up as a general officer in the 1970s (I was then a Militiaman, myself.)
