Shilo Army Cadets Earn 2018 "Cadet Salute"

Brandon, MB - Cadets of the 2502 Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps 1RCHA based at CFB Shilo have earned the Brandon Salutes “Cadet Salute” for 2018.

The Shilo Army Cadets started a few years ago as a small offshoot of the Brandon Army Cadets. Despite their smaller size, they accomplished an incredible about of community work in the last year. From clean-up work after events on base to placing over one thousand candles on veterans’ tombstones in the Brandon cemetery.

“It is a very difficult decision for the committee to single out just one group of cadets for recognition,” says Matt Bolley, Chair of Brandon Salutes. “They all do a tremendous job. Everyone involved in the Cadet movement in this community deserves this award.”

Each year Brandon Salutes honours a Brandon cadet organization with a “Cadet Salute” to the corps that best exemplifies the Brandon Salutes mission to foster the relationship between the civilian and military communities in Brandon. This is accomplished by the community work, weekly activities, and overall esprit-de-corps that cadets conduct. They may not be a direct part of the military community but they do take pride in the uniform, strive to be good citizens and cadets, and continue their education, all of which are part of the military ethos.
