1. CO’s Message - Major Scott Southern
I hope that all cadets had a wonderful thanksgiving holiday! My hope is that you spent lots of time to rest and relax, and that you are now ready to come back to 706 re-energized!
On Friday, the senior cadets met with me to discuss various items including a vision moving forward. My expectations for the senior cadets are clear and I believe that they will make a great leadership team this year.
I will be spending some time this week observing the lessons being taught by our excellent instructors. If you bump into me, don’t be afraid to introduce yourself!
Finally, a word on uniforms. We have had a shipment of uniforms arrive, so all cadets should check the supply room door for a list of uniforms ready to pick up. This list will be available in 5 Brouillette as well.
Good luck to the biathlon team as they compete in the Patrol Race on Sunday!
