Technology Career, Cold War

I served in the Canadian Army for 34 years as a Field Engineer specializing in Improvised Explosive Device Disposal. During my service, I served in Europe during the Cold War, was involved in the 1st Gulf War and was a Peacekeeper in the former Yugoslavia. I am passionate about helping families learn about their Canadian relative's military history. I will emphasize that war is horrible, not at all glamorous, but sometimes necessary. I love questions about my service and about what it's like serving.

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