I had the pleasure of working with a young CPL Girardeau when he came to Australia as part of the Canadian C-130 contingent for Exercise Bullseye (Airlift competition between New Zealand, Australia, Canada and the UK) way back in 1996 (I was a CPL on the Australian team). I remember Guy and all of the Canadian team to be highly professional and unbelievably friendly. We had a great time Guy. Thanks for the memories and thank you for your service.
