Our Executive Officer Receives CDS Commendation

On 20 August 2020, in Burlington, ON, Lt(N) Melissa King, our Executive Officer here at RCSCC OAKVILLE, was presented with a Chief of Defense Staff Commendation.

She was presented the CDS Commendation by BGen Cochrane, Commander of Cadets and Junior Canadian Rangers (via video), along with LCol Leonard, Commanding Officer of RCSU Central.  The CDS Commendation is awarded by the Chief of Defense Staff to recognize deeds or activities beyond the demand of normal duty.  It is one of the highest commendations and recognition in the Canadian Armed Forces.

In April 2018, Lt(N) King demonstrated determination and strength of character when faced with an unknown situation, taking action without hesitation.  A youth was in distress, and her quick actions saved them from potential suicide.  Her actions not only exemplify the values of the Canadian Armed Forces, but also reflect positively on her Corps, her region, the COATS branch and formation as a whole.

A sincere congratulations and well done, Lt(N) King.  You are an example for others to follow.  Bravo Zulu!
