A time to commemorate
We are happy to be back after a short threeweek pause and to announce that this edition of the Guard of Honour is now available at the Carling Campus, in common areas across Building 8 as well as at the in Building 6. We will also be back at the Campus shortly after Easter for our weekly orientation sessions, held on Friday mornings by the Tim Horton’s for CAF personnel and DND employees newly relocated.
I would like to congratulate LG en Lamarre on assuming Command of Military Personnel Command from LGen Whitecross during a ceremony at the Cartier Square Drill Hall presided over by the Chief of the Defence Staff. I also wish to congratulate LGen Whitecross on being appointed Commandant of NATO’s Defence College in Rome.
Lastly, a huge thank you and congratulations to all the troops from across Canada who came to Ottawa to help us commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge on April 9, at the National War Memorial.
The Guard of Honour wants to hear your stories. We encourage every member of the local Defence community to submit articles and photos they would like to share with their peers. If you have an event, a program update or an accomplishment to promote, or know of someone who does, please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
