English & French

Speaking Topics:

Conflict in Afghanistan, Peacekeeping, Remembrance, NATO, Careers

I can talk about my career as an officer in the Royal 22e Régiment, my participation in UN missions in Cyprus and Croatia, as well as my NATO missions in Kosovo and Afghanistan. I also lived 15 years outside Canada and 19 years outside Québec. I also served in Poland for 4 years with NATO’s Joint Force Training Center as an Officer of Staff (OPR: Officer of Primary Responsibility for the southern division) in Bydgoszcz, and I also taught the Exercise Planning Officer Course at NATO School in Oberhammergau, Germany. In Québec, I also took part in the Oka Crisis in 1990 as well as the Winnipeg flooding in 1997. I can also talk about pretty much any subject relating to military service in garrison, but mainly in military operations.

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