My Big Brother Emile and me

I was top student at my Recruit school in 1980 and received the Commandant's Trophy.  My brother Emile had told me that Recruit school was real tough.  I topped the course and beat the Push-up record in PT did 100 Push-up in 1 Minute.  After that he told me that the Airborne was a bunch of Tough guys so I joined the Airborne and not only did 2 years with them I did 7 years before being posted to CFB Chatam, NB where I did 1 Military jump but continue to Skydive on Civy street.   That's how I got into this mess as I survived the King Air 100 crash on Aug 3rd 2008 a day that will live in infamy,  That's life.
Below is the link to the TSB Final Report on my plane crash

My 52 and last Military Jump with a CT-2 canopy at CFB Chatam, NB

The fun part of being in the Airborne is that there's multiple ways to travel.  Here I'm doing rappelling from a Twin Huey Helicopter in CFB Petawawa, Ontario
