Hey rotozero , I had a Warrant Officer who use to be in the 3PPCLI he is now going into 2PPCLI as Sergeant Major.

Oh yeah, who’s the WO?
I used to be 3PPCLI (long ago). Are you 3VP?

Chuck cote? Know him?

I do indeed! He was my point of…

Also another guy, recently retired sergeant. Robert Taillon

Nope, don’t know him.
Here’s a couple of old guys you might know: Rich Davey (CSM), Joel “pipes” Turnbull (WO… I think), Neil Connors (WO), Ray McGregor (CSM), Trevor Avey (WO)

No, don’t know any of them. I’m not part of the PPCLI, I went to RMC for a year apart of the ALOY program and WO Cote was the CO for the program. Going ncm for combat engineer, might transfer to infantry if possible. So I’m just a young pte. 

Sounds like pretty exciting times coming up. Chuck is def. a good example of hard-nosed an awesome. You’ll find plenty of those types around.

Hey, if you wanna read a pretty great graphic novel about being a combat engineer and war artist, check out David Collier’s Chimo.

Good luck with all the shit that’s coming your way!

I do indeed! He was my point of entry into Kabul, and I met him previously on Dessert Ram 2011 (Suffield). From what I told, he and I were in 3VP as Pte. back in the 90s. He was in Charlie when I was in Bravo.

He’s certainly got a way about him, and though we had a rocky start in Kabul, we got along pretty well after a while.

The coin I designed for The Royal Canadian Mint became official today.

Pretty exciting stuff I’d say.
