Valcartier, Quebec, 05 August 2015 – the Commanding Officer, LCol Paul Langlais, and Regimental Sergeant-Major, MWO David Cochrane, accompanied by the Honorary Lieutenant-Colonel, LCol (ret’d) Colin Robinson, visited the RMR soldiers undergoing individual training at the 2 Division battle school in Valcartier.
It has been a very successful training year for the Regiment, with seven (7) Corporals graduating from the Primary Leadership Qualification course, which means there will be a round of promotions coming in the Fall as the Regiment grows its base of leaders!
The 20 RMR’s who graduated from the Basic Infantry course were fresh off their 13 kilometre Battle Fitness Test when the CO addressed them. Their spirits were high and their NCO’s were complimentary about their performance, noting that they had finished the march strong and together.
After the meeting with the CO & RSM, the NCO’s put the troops through their paces on the obstacle course. Morale is high as the soldiers prepare themselves for the MILCON that starts on the weekend.
