I am currently an undergrad, but am looking forward to joining the Canadian Armed Forces after graduation, as a Public Affairs Officer. The main reason I am on Sparkpeople is to be in suitable shape for recruitment in my final year of University.
It's a natural choices for me, though a difficult one for my family. I was raised in a military family. My great-grandfather fought for Britain in Vimy Ridge, my great-uncle served in the Canadian Army in WWII, my grandfather was with the Canadian Naval Signal Corps during WWII. My father unfortunately was not able to serve due to a lazy eye and a lame shoulder, but I grew up going to Legion events, attending ceremonies and fundraisers and volunteering for the Legion.
I am aiming for the position of Public Affairs Officer to better the public's understanding of what goes on in our Armed Forces, but I would be honoured to serve in any capacity.
