Royal Regiment of Canadian Artillery

Royal Regiment of Canadian Artillery

During my late ’20s, I served for a few years in a reserve unit of the Royal Canadian Artillery.  I loved the camaraderie, the discipline and training, and yes, getting to fire those big-ass cannons.  The connections I made back then stuck with me, and I always had a soft spot for the Armed Forces.  Back in the fall of 2019, I was reading in their newsletter that they were looking for volunteers to help them maintain their website.  Not only was I willing to help, but when I first looked at their site, I was lots of opportunities for improvement and I wanted to get involved in a big way.  More than 40 years after leaving the forces, I’ve become one of the most active volunteers in their organization.
