Military Colleges connection: promotions and senior appointments 2018 General and Flag officers list

We had the opportunity over the weekend to take a quick look at the promotions and senior appointments 2018 General and Flag officers list.

We recognized quite a few familiar names with a military college connection; we have attempted to list many of them even though we likely missed a few. Included on the list are four fairly recent Commandants – 3 from RMC and 1 from CMR Saint-Jean.

The list also includes: PGs; Distant Learning and a widow of an Ex Cadet. Note: Some of our photos are out-of-date in regards to rank.
