The cadets of the Royal Military College of Canada put on a remembrance parade on Sunday at the Memorial Arch.  Cadets, members of the Training Wing, and spectators paid their respects to the 2996 people who lost their lives exactly ten years ago.

With the flags at half mast, cadets formed up in front of the Memorial Arch to listen to a speech from RMC’s Commandant, Brigadier General Eric Trembley.  The parade held a minute of silence in remembrance of the sacrifices made by the victims of the 9/11 attacks and the fallen servicemen and women who marched to war in response to that tragic day.
