I began my military career as a Reservist in 1970 and transferred to the Regular Force in 1976. I completed 30 years of service with the Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry and eight overseas deployments in Cyprus(2), Angola, South Africa, the Balkans(2) and Afghanistan(2). The highlight of my deployments was as an election observer for the first democratic elections in South Africa in the spring of 1994. Upon retiring from the Regular Force in 2006, I transferred back to the Reserves until reaching compulsory retirement age. I have a total of just under 42 years of military service. I have no issues with talking about any aspect of my military career.

The Memory Project includes a community of over 1,500 veterans and Canadian Forces members who are committed to sharing their stories of service.
