Celebrating 100 editions of e-Veritas

Just over three years ago, the first issue of e-Veritas was published under its current format. This is its 100th edition and the 12th this year. The success of e-Veritas is due to many factors: our readers, who support us with tremendous feedback; the Club’s Executive Director, S 150 Peter Dawe, who has given valuable guidance while allowing us to get on with the job; the Club’s Executive who have provided the resources for e-Veritas and have been understanding when e-Veritas has dealt with contentious issues.

We have many others to thank! In the early days: 23241 OCdt Craig Scott (RMC ’05); 23227 OCdt Tyler Peitzsche (RMC ’06); 24225 OCdt Josh Fudge (RMC ’08) all of whom displayed tremendous patience while holding our hand through various “in-house” technical steps along the way. Later, 23439 OCdt Kayne Carr (RMC ’07) was our “right arm” for the best part of 15 months. 24587 OCdt Ian Boughton (RMC ’10) pitched in for a month or so which got us through some tough times. Currently, 24637 OCdt Kevin Kunz (RMC ’10) is our “go to guy” Officer Cadet.

On the professional side of things, 5070 Bob Cross (CMR RMC ’61) managed the layout and most of the technical side of things for the first two years with help from his staffer, Michelle Wright. Both provided a high level of service above and beyond the call of duty.

Two RMC staff have been extremely helpful. Captain Paule Poulin, Public Affairs Officer, supplies us with timely press releases on a regular basis and on several occasions has penned high quality human interest articles. 8057 Ross McKenzie (RMC ’70) from the RMC Museum has kept us pretty well on the straight and narrow when dealing with historical RMC facts.

Three stalwarts from Panet House: Mary Darlington; Kathleen Bachelder and Kimberly St Louis provided year long support which is very much appreciated. For the first two years, Nathalie Jean was our main helper in Panet House and suffered through many of the growing pains but ensured we stayed on the proper course.

The one person who deserves a great deal of recognition and special praise is our outstanding researcher, E3161 Victoria Edwards (RMC ’03). For the past 80 editions or so, Victoria has bombarded us with suggested articles; trivia ideas; and suggested themes. Our “Victoria File” still has something like 200+ e-mails in it. The quality of e-Veritas content would not have been possible without her tremendous contributions.

Mainly, we want to acknowledge the support of our faithful readers. Many of whom are currently involved with operational commitments in different parts of the world – mostly in hostile environments. Their commitment is a reminder to us that RMC is a pretty special place in producing future leaders.

Our little Mom & Pop operation may not be as slick as a number of other e-newsletters we do strive to keep as many of the RMC family connected as possible.

In closing, we ask that you keep those serving abroad, on the sea, and in the air, in your thoughts as you enjoy reading e-Veritas.
