    40th Anniversary of the Intelligence Branch

    Also it's the 80th Anniversary of the Canadian Intelligence Corps (C Int C) and the 10th Anniversary of the Meteorological Technician occupation coming over to the INT Branch. But still, all those buttons and bow-ties couldn't compete with Queen's U homecoming!

    Perhaps Canada needs to stop formally accepting NATO and UN medals and create an actual Canadian honour. Just look at what happened in Mali (as noted in the post-mission AAR): discontent with honours as some members received the OSM-HUMANITAS while others received the UN MINUSMA medal based...
