Which Ex Cadet Said What? When? Why?

To carry on the legacy of Canadian participation in operations in the Middle East is a tremendous opportunity. I look forward to assuming command over such a dynamic international team.

“I suffered several rude awakenings as I arrived at the golden years of my military career. First, I was demoralized at having had committed my life to a military institution that was incapable of winning the war in Afghanistan.“

**

“”We’re ready for this,”” he declared as the troops boarded their charter for Norway. Along with the rest of 5 CMBG, the VanDoos had spent part of January in the deep snow south of Quebec City rehearsing the skills of fighting and surviving in near-arctic conditions during Exercise RAFALE BLANCHE. The exercise there,  was “”organized to prepare for what we expected to do”” in Norway.

“Right now they’re confident; they’re capable. They’ve been conducting numerous operations on their own and they’ve had a number of successes,”

**

“I wanted to continue to serve Canada, but through business,”

**

“I wanted to continue playing hockey and my education was important to me.”

**

“Hearing from the Minister of Justice is unusual,”

**

“The first thing I could think of was my daughter was between the two of us. So I went to grab her right away. And they said stop,”

**

“It was one of those tourist things, where they cycle people through every hour. It was so much fun, a simple little trek. But it probably was the biggest defining moment. I said to myself, ‘I gotta do this.’”

 **

“The ATF is proud to leave behind a cross to commemorate Canada’s efforts in protecting the Baltic skies and its commitment to NATO,”

 **

“There are just no words to describe a loss as tragic as this,”

 **

“This is a serious institution, but you have got to have fun at the same time,”
