When you were younger, you always wanted to help, and to contribute to your school and community. In June 2015, we waved goodbye to a boy on a Via train, heading to BMOQ. With each visit, we watched as your confidence and maturity grew. Today, we see a confident young man who still wants to help and contribute, this time to his country. Michael, we couldn’t be more proud of all your accomplishments, your persistence, and your drive to meet your goals. Congratulations on your graduation, and we wish you good health, good friends, and a lifetime of rewarding experiences. Thank you for your service to Canada. And no, you can’t microwave a turkey.
Love from Mom and Dad.

Une lettre à Gerson
Quatre ans déjà depuis la fin de ton secondaire et ton assermentation! Voilà que le temps file, et beaucoup d’eau a coulé sous le pont. De l’adolescent faisant un choix audacieux d’adopter la profession des armes au jeune homme que tu es devenu, il y a de quoi être fier. Depuis ton départ de notre petit village agricole de Moose Creek en Ontario à ton séjour au CMR de Kingston, ce fut pour toi une grande aventure dont les défis t’ont transformé et permis de développer ta force de caractère, ton intellect et de te forger de nouvelles amitiés à travers lesquelles tu as appris à t’épanouir.
En faisant la lumière sur ton cheminement, nous sommes fiers que tu obtiennes ton Baccalauréat en sciences de l’espace. On se rappelle de tes premiers jours où le POPA t’a tellement mis à l’épreuve, mais dont tu es sorti vainqueur en tenant bon! L’équipe d’escrime fut aussi une autre constante dans laquelle tu as développé tes habiletés tant athlétiques que de leadership jusqu’à en gagner plusieurs médailles dont la médaille d’or au Carleton U. Invitational Tournament. Y’a de quoi être fier en temps que capitaine d’une équipe gagnante!!
Ta motivation principale de te joindre au FAC est “d’être là pour tes concitoyens”. Ce sont tes propres paroles. Si tu te laisses guider par ce principe fondamental, tu pourras suivre avec confiance tes rêves et tes ambitions.
Vie ta vie comme tu l’as imaginée!! Nous t’aimons et nous sommes fiers de toi!
A letter to Gerson
Four years since your high school graduation and your swearing-in! Time has gone by, and a lot of water has flowed under the bridge. From the teenager making a bold choice to adopt the arms profession to the young man you have become, there is something to be proud of. Since your departure from our small farming village of Moose Creek, Ontario to your stay at RMC Kingston, it has been a great adventure for you, whose challenges have transformed you and allowed you to develop your strength of character, your intellect and to forge yourself new friendships through which you have learned to blossom.
By looking back on your journey, we are proud that you have earned your Bachelor’s degree in Space Science. We remember your first days when the FYOP had put you to the test, but you made it holding strong! The fencing team was also another constant in which you developed your athletic as well as your leadership skills in which you won several medals including the gold medal at the Carleton U. Invitational Tournament. There’s something to be proud of as a captain of a winning team !!
Your main motivation for joining the FAC is “to be there for your fellow citizens”. These are your own words. If you let yourself be guided by this fundamental principle, you will be able to follow with confidence your dreams and your ambitions.
Live your life as you imagined it !! We love you and we are proud of you!
