1. Colonel Robyn Hulan, OMM, CD will retire from the Canadian Armed Forces after 30 plus years of loyal and dedicated service to Canada on 31 October 2022.

2. Colonel Hulan’s career has spanned signals intelligence, electronic warfare and information technology operations to include multiple deployments and two postings to the United States where her most recent assignment to North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD), saw her leading NORAD’s digital transformation and innovation initiative – Pathfinder. In that time, she is forever grateful for the incredible teams with whom she has worked, and the everlasting friendships made.

3. With her husband Colonel Corey Crosby and son Brody’s unwavering love and support, Colonel Hulan is ready for the next chapter of her life – a narrative yet to be written.

4. To truly end where it all began, an informal retirement function will take place on Wednesday 16 November 2022 at the CFS Leitrim All Ranks Mess at 1400 hrs. If you wish to attend or send well wishes, please contact Major Alex Sheasby at [email protected]

Dear Robyn,

Many congratulations on having a full career in the Corps and everything that you have accomplished. Good luck on life outside the Army – I admire your courage in embracing civilian life head on – something that I am loathe to do, but comes to us all! Colonel Andy Percival sends you his warmest regards from Blandford Camp. Apologies for not being at your mugging out in Leitrim; I’m certain that you will have a great time albeit tinged with some poignancy. All the best for the future!

Yours aye

Robyn, congratulations on a hugely successful and rewarding career; we served together in Afghanistan in 2012 and your leadership of your superb Squadron that so ably supported the Headquarters was a triumph. A decade + on, I still remember with fondness working alongside my Canadian (and Dutch) colleagues. Enjoy the next chapter, and God speed.
