50 Years since Prep Camp, for the CMR Entry Class of 1970, arrives in August 2020. No matter how long you were at CMR St-Jean (with attendance or not at Kingston or Royal Roads), 2020 is the year our Class enters the Old Brigade, although we will be celebrating this event in 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
To the graduating Class of 2020, today we raise our glass to you for your perseverance in these trying times. We salute you for your grit, now and in the future. We want you to know that your four years might be over with incredible memories behind you, but your life is just about to begin. We are proud of you today, and we will be proud of you tomorrow as you become the future leaders of Canada.
From the Old 18 to the First 32 we have grown outside the conventional walls that once bound us. We have created an atmosphere and a way of life that Officer Cadets and our future leaders of Canada strive towards.
The walls, the architecture, the furniture, the peaks and the valleys all telling the story of how your heritage led you through the Arch, and to your commitment to the Canadian Armed Forces and the phrase: Truth, Duty, Valour.
