My name is Francisco (Frank) Aroz, I was born in Spain in 1956, and immigrated to Canada with my parents, in 1963. Educated and raised in Montreal, I joined the Canadian Armed Forces in 1975 as an Infantryman with the Royal 22end Regiment, and the Canadian Airborne Regiment. In 1980, I transferred trades and became a Military Police. During my 26 year career with the Canadian Forces, I traveled all over Canada and the world including Germany during the Cold War. I have been deployed in two United Nations operations: Haiti, and Republic of Central Africa, as well as numerous humanitarian assistance operations. I’m fluent in three languages: English, French, and Spanish. I’m the recipient of the 6 medals: the Canadian decoration service medal, the Confederation of Canada Medal, Republic of Central Africa UN Medal, Haiti UN Medal, The Peace Keeping Medal, and the NATO medal. I am now retired and residing in Cornwall ON. I volunteer for different organizations such as The Memory Project, and a veterans group called Friends of Veterans.
