Luncheon Meeting - Remembrance Day Recognition

Youth, Remembrance, and the Canadian War Museum -
General (Retired) Paul D. Manson

General Manson served as Chief of the Defence Staff from 1986 to 1989. A fighter pilot, he served extensively with NATO in Europe during his 37-year military career. From 1977 to 1980, he was Program Manager of the New Fighter Aircraft project, which led to the selection of the CF-18 Hornet for the air force. Born in Trail, British Columbia, he was educated in Montreal and Pembroke, Ontario, before attending the Canadian Military Colleges at Royal Roads and the Royal Military College, receiving the Sword of Honour upon graduation from the latter. He holds BSc degrees in electrical engineering from both RMC and Queen’s University, and has received two honourary doctorates. He is a graduate of the Canadian Forces Staff College (1966) and the National Defence College (1974).

We will be joined by the Cadets Color Party who will lead the March and share with us their Flag Presentation. 

The wearing of decorations by serving Canadian Forces members and by veterans is appropriate and encouraged.   We will proudly be recognizing the war veterans, and we encourage you to invite veterans to join us.
