Duncan to see why you have not been promoted yet.

 

·       This evening Flight Sergeant Chee is aging out. He is aging out a little early because he has been accepted into the Canadian Armed Forces and you cannot be in Cadets and the CAF at the same time. We wish him all the best in his future career with the Canadian Army!
