Which Ex Cadet Said What? When? Why?

**

“In 1962, I was selected as one of four RCAF people to join the USAF Space Systems Division in Los Angeles, California. For one year, I was the USAF Project Manager for the Ranger and Mariner programs.”

**

“I have absolutely no bad memories. I had an excellent staff that, for the most part, was the best I ever worked with during a 37 year career. I also was fortunate in having two very supportive Commandants who never interfered with my decisions and responsibilities as CO of the Cadet Wing (although they did tender helpful suggestions on occasion).”

**

” I remember adapting to life at CMR with relative ease, especially after the first two weeks. We worked in English for the first 15 days of the month and in French for the rest of the month.”

**

“The one very sad moment was the loss of a cadet 17333 Kelly Gawne, who was killed in a demolitions summer training accident at Slesse Range in Chilliwack, BC in 1988. [In her honour, alumni planted a memorial tree with a plaque on the RMC campus and the 17333 Kelly Gawne Memorial award goes annually to the best all-round Lady OCdt in athletics].”

**

“Just woke up at 0400. No choice if we want to make the timing for our team departure at approx 0600. They have done extremely well on the ranges and dry runs all week. From Capt (Zach) Gatehouse’s observation, RMC is the team to beat.”

**

“ I was only 17 when I left home and probably quite a bit less mature (from a worldly knowledge perspective) than the others I started out with. I think this fact actually helped me get through the first year. Basic training wasn’t bad; it was more of an eye-opener for me as to what I could really do for myself and how I could rise to challenges never before considered.”

**

“My first – first visit to West Point, and my last – we got absolutely smoked. Overall, it was something playing in front of so many people. A lot of fun. But it all became very political. I think it distracted the guys from focusing on the OUAA which was more important.”

**

“This match-up carries with it a long standing heritage of hockey. Due to the history of the series, it brings with it such an importance to RMC. I feel as if I have been a part of history and to also have not lost on home ice truly means a lot to me. By far the best hockey highlight of my career!”

**

I don’t regret leaving my previous job in the Regular force because as a Reservist, I am still able to contribute. It is also my intent to return to the Regular Force as a Pharmacy Officer if accepted into a program and continue serving until retirement.

**

“During one afternoon mission at RIMPAC, we refueled a variety of aircraft including US Navy ‘Super Hornet’ fighters, our own CF-18 Hornet’s and a very unique aircraft for us, a US Navy FA-18F which is modified to serve as an air-to-air tanker,”

**

“I felt I needed to do something to help Afghanistan and carry out, in my mind, a little bit of what Nichola was doing in Afghanistan,”

**

“You grow up in southern Alberta and there’s an opportunity to go work construction or in the oilpatch, and I said, ‘you know what I think I’ll do Mom, is I’ll go and work for a year and maybe make some money before I do this,’ and she said, ‘if you do that, you’ll get used to the money and you’ll never go back to school.’
