Navy; Korea

I spent 5 years in the Canadian Navy, serving an 14 month tour in Korea aboard the Canadian Destroyer HMCS Cayuga. I was on the third trip of this ship which began towards the end of the shooting war, during the cease fire and up until the Truce was signed. I joined the Vancouver Police Department and attained a rand of Acting Superintendent serving in many capacities and squads including Homicide and Robbery, Major Crime Squad, Coordinated Law Enforcement Unit, Emergency Response Team (SWAT, Officer I/C Expo 86, and many VIP Visits including the visit to Expo by Charles and Diana. Upon retiring from the Police Department I spend 7 years as the Security Manager for Work Safe BC and another 6 years as the Loss Prevention Manager for Amica Mature Lifestyles who operated 27 retirement homes across Canada. During this period I provided talks to Residents on how to stay safe and avoid various scams perpetrated upon senior and talks to the staff on how to be safe at work, at home and at play. I also spent some time doing Private Investigation for a number of companies, travelling into Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario and most areas of British Columbia. I presently do some Police Liaison work for Radius Security who operate a Live Video Monitoring system that assists the police in apprehending Criminals as they view actual "Crimes in Progress" and are able to direct the police to the suspects and then provide video footage of them committing the crime.

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