Gaetan,

On of the best career soldiers, mentors, technicians, any tech could ever ask for.

From the day you taught me do you have framing to so many other lessons.

You were my first master corporal, and my sergeant, warrant, and my master warrant officer all though my career.

You have taught me so many lessons that I carry with me today.

You have honourably and selfishly served our trade, the army, the Canadian forces, and our country to the highest standard.

It was an honour to have served with you, to learn from you, to laugh, live and fight along side you.

I wish you fast cars, hot beaches, beautiful destinations in your future. Stay in touch my friend.

Peter Bowles
