Thank You to Our Soldiers
With Remembrance Day approaching, we want express our gratitude to Canadian soldiers. We also want to share a few lessons learned from a recent workshop on the culture of the Canadian military.
- Being a Canadian soldier is more than a job. It’s a life…with very different rules (mission before self), relationships (brotherhood), and activities (basic training) than civilian life.
- Most Canadian men and women enlist in the military with the expectation of retiring as soldiers. To fall short of this goal, for whatever reason, can be depressing.
- Soldiers have two families – their biological family and their military family. Each family will have primary importance at various times in a soldier’s career.
To our servicemen and women, thank you.
