Ex-Cadets Mug Out of RMCC
Article and Photos by 25366 Mike Shewfelt
The coming of summer is a bittersweet time for the staff at RMCC. Once the chaos of Grad Week has passed, the thoughts of many turn to postings. June is posting season on the peninsula, as staff members leave the College to open a new chapter in their career, and as others come in to take their place. And while there is excitement at what is to come, for those moving on, emotions run high at what they leave behind. As LCol Sue Wigg, RMCC Director of Cadets put it, “After working here, and doing this job, no job will ever be big again.”
To mark the accomplishment and contributions of departing staff, and to help everyone bring the year to a close, the RMCC staff “mugged out” the departing staff members on Thursday, 31 May. Those departing were sent off in style, with the Training Wing staff having their own ceremony prior to the Senior Staff Mess ceremony, which involved all departing staff members from around the College.
Of particular interest was the promotion of 22823 Anthony Robb, the departing 1 Sqn Commander, who was promoted from Captain to Major.
e-Veritas wishes all those who “mugged out” the best of luck in their new postings.
