Army Cadet review coming up

The 3064 Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps Rocky Mountain Rangers will hold their 15th Annual Ceremonial Review Sunday, May 31.

The 3064 Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps Rocky Mountain Rangers will hold their 15th Annual Ceremonial Review Sunday, May 31 starting at 1 p.m. on the grounds of the Williams Lake Regional Airport.

This is the culmination of the cadet training year where local army cadets showcase their skills to the public, says training officer Lieutenant William Sheridan.

The reviewing officers will review the cadets and help distribute honours, awards and trophies to hard working cadets for the 2014/15 training year.

Following the inspection cadets will demonstrate such skills as radio communications, physical fitness training, marksmanship, and music.

Reviewing officers this year will be Major Rick Lewis OMM, OSt.J, CD, AdeC of Prince George and Bonnie O’Neil, Royal Canadian Legion Branch 139 president.

Major Lewis started out as a cadet in 1972 and became an army officer in 1977. He has been a strong advocate for the Canadian Cadet program for four decades and this fall he will be awarded the Order of Military Merit from His Excellency David Johnston Governor General of Canada. Major Lewis is also Aide de Comp to Her Worship Judith Guichon Lieutenant Governor of B.C.

O’Neil is a supporter of the cadet movement who has volunteered in the community with various organizations and will present the Legion Medal of Honour to a deserving cadet.

The event is open to the general public free of charge but due to the venue at the airport spectators will need to provide their own seating.
