Collège Militaire Royal de Saint-Jean: A Trip Down Memory-Lane

An old mil-col buddy shared this video on facebook, and it sure brought back some memories from my officer cadet days at CMR!CMR was my home in Saint-Jean, Quebec for 5 years (1990-1995) as I was trained in my (univ) studies, leadership, sports/training and French.  These were incredible years of discipline and great (and some not so great) memories!  Still hard to believe that I received a 5-year, $75,000 scholarship.  If you are a young Canadian with the chance to attend one of our military colleges or ever have children that have such an opportunity, you/they should definitely go for it.  Life changing!  Thanks to RMR (Rick Mercer Report) for bringing back such memories.  Check out the CMR website to learn more. There are a couple of videos on that page that are quite informative.  The video “Programme d’orientation” was my favorite as it brought me back to my orientation days way back in August of 1990!
