Major Judy Peter of Campbell River, B.C. was presented with a Commanding Officer’s Commendation at Vernon Army Cadet Summer Training Centre (VACSTC).
“Maj J. Peter, CD, Is commended for her role in arranging to have the Portraits of Honour make an unofficial stop at VACSTC. This allowed the cadets and members of the public to experience the tribute to the fallen Canadian Forces Men and Women that they otherwise might not have seen. Her contributions continue to add to the overall experience for cadets at the Vernon Army Cadet Summer Training Centre. Major Peter, the Commanding Officer of 2943 Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps in Campbell River was employed during the summer as the Deputy Commanding Officer at VACSTC. During the summer, more than 1100 army cadets from western Canada have spent to six weeks in the Okanagan Valley centre, expanding the training they receive at their home corps, developing new skills and forming friendships. After the final parade and sunset ceremony, the cadets and officers made their way to their homes in western Canada, fully prepared for another season of training in citizenship, physical fitness and leadership.”
