The Army Cadet League of Canada received the following email from Bill Kilsby;
19 years ago my wife was a cadet in 1725 Chilliwack Army cadets.
She was awarded the top red star award then at Vernon camp she was awarded the top cadet in platoon.
This year our Son in same cadet core,
Our Son was awarded the top Red star and at Vernon camp was awarded top cadet in platoon for basic marksmanship!
I guess my wife passed on her good Cadet abilities to our son!
Thank you very much for a great program!
BC Lions Flag Party
INTERESTED IN PARTICIPATING IN THE BC LIONS FLAG PARTY?
Cadets from the Pacific Region are authorized to participate in the BC Lions Flag Party during home games in Vancouver. Dress is full dress and timings are one hour before game time at the East Airlock entrance. Cadets are required to stay until the opening O Canada ceremony and can be dismissed at that point. Cadets can stay and watch the game but will not be supervised at that point, and since they will be still in uniform conduct is expected to be on the highest Canadian Forces standard.
Thank you Letter from the 2827 RCACC Parent
RCSU (P) received a lovely thank you letter for the Expedition staff that were involved with the Silver Star Expedition at Golden Ears from May 4-5, 2019 from the parent of MCpl Silvey. When MCpl Silvey of the 2827 RCACC fell he knew right away he was hurt seriously and was unable to walk. CIC Officers and Cadet Staff showed such professionalism executing first aid, and keeping MCpl Silvey calm. The confidence that MCpl Silvey had for the CIC Officers and Staff Cadets is a huge testament to the program, training, dedication and professionalism that the Cadet Instructor Cadre and the Cadet Program instills.
We hope MCpl Silvey has a quick recovery from his injuries.
