Dear Chris,
Congratulations on your retirement from the Army and Corps – I didn’t think that you were old enough to be retired! It was great to work with you first in Ottawa and then in the JSR – you’re a real leader and an excellent officer with a very good sense of humour indeed. Thank you also for showing me the hot spots in Munich.

Chris, congrats on a great career! The CAF is losing a good one. Will never forget our good times at CFJSR. Best of luck in your next phase of life!
