A Car­ing Cadet

Frances Rose of Brook­lin, Ont., writes, “My grand­son, Con­ner Browne, is an Air Cadet with 2 Van­den­bos Squadron in Whitby, Ont. In the sum­mer of 2017, he was at a cadet camp at CFB Bor­den. He took it upon him­self to col­lect money for Wounded War­riors Canada. He and some other cadets dared a fel­low cadet to wear a dress and walk through the camp. They said that they would give him $50 if he would do so. The cadet de­clined the dare, but Con­ner de­cided to do it him­self, and donate the money to Wounded War­riors. He said if he col­lected $200, he would also wear makeup and let the girls wax his legs. The of­fi­cers at the camp found out and thought that the cadets were just fool­ing around, so he was not al­lowed to walk the lines at the camp. He was, how­ever, able to col­lect more than $600 dur­ing the sum­mer. He con­tin­ued his fundrais- ing at school and was able to raise a to­tal of $1,000. He hap­pily do­nated it to a rep­re­sen­ta­tive of Wounded War­riors Canada dur­ing one of the squadron meet­ings, in front of all his friends and fam­ily. I am so proud of the young man he has be­come and can­not wait to see what his fu­ture brings.“
