In an effort to encourage others to learn from their mistakes, I want to share one of my biggest mistakes from the beginning of the year on why clear communication is critical.
The White Hackle
From May 25-27, we will be taking a busload of 21 Army Cadets to Jamestown and Celoron New York to be a part of the U.S. Memorial Day Weekend festivities with American Legion Branch 777. Find more about the trip and how you can participate
Each year, cadets across the country stand vigil at their local cenotaph, in memory of those who have given the ultimate sacrifice in the name of Canada. This year, 21 is reviving the tradition that has been lost at our corps over the years. We will be posting cadets for one hour shifts through out the night starting at 20:00hrs (8:00pm) November 10th ending at the commencement of the regular services on November 11.
As part of the White Hackle, we’re going to help bridge the gap so that cadets are better aware of the leadership at the Regiment. In this edition, we’d like to introduce the Incoming Commanding Officer of the Highland Fusiliers, Lieutenant-Colonel Steve Coe.
This Tuesday, October 2, we will be welcoming new members to the 21 Army Cadets Pipes and Drums band.
I have created the attached form to help speed up the uniform issuing and updating process.
The White Hackle caught up with two cadets that are fairly new to the corps, and definitely new to serving in the community at events like this one.
It’s almost October, so that means it’s time to start talking about tagging. Tagging is the biggest single source of funding for 21 Army Cadets.
For those that have signed up for the Treetop Trekking adventure here is some last minute information
At the beginning of the summer, I get an invitation to the League and Sponsor Appreciation Day at Blackdown Cadet Training Centre. I’ve been to 2 Sundown Ceremonies and to 4 Graduation Parades at Blackdown, but for some reason, I’ve never been to the League Appreciation Day.
