1 comment

On 28 October 2021, C&E Family witnessed Change of Appointment Ceremony from BGen (Ret’d) Kevin O’Keefe, OMM, CD to BGen (Ret’d) Josée Robidoux, OMM, CD.

The ceremony was televised via MS Teams and was attended by outgoing Colonel Commandant: Brigadier-General Kevin O’Keefe (Retired); incoming Colonel Commandant: Brigadier-General Josée Robidoux (Retired); the Branch Leader: Brigadier-General James Lambert; and the Branch Chief: Chief Warrant Officer Gilles Philibert, as well as C&E Branch dignitaries.

Deeply emotional speeches described outgoing Col Cmdt’s enormous contributions and selfless dedication to C&E Family in these difficult times. During his 50 years in uniform, BGen (Ret’d) O’Keefe served the Branch in various roles, including Branch Leader, President of C&E Association and C&E Museum Foundation.

BGen (Ret’d) O’Keefe is an inspiration for many generations of soldiers, we keep you in our hearts as we thank for your service, Sir! BZ.

We welcome new Col Cmdt to C&E Family!
