And why’d you join?
I was 18.
I didn’t want to play football after high school and that’s what my dad expected from me. So one day, while in Saskatoon, I went to the recruiter and signed up. I was actually 17 then and had to get my mom to sign with me. She didn’t want to, but I made her.
They phoned me while I was in grade 12 but I told them I wanted to finish high school. They called back shortly after graduation.
I’m also the third generation in my family to serve so I guess it’s in the blood.
It was an awesome and horrible experience all at the same time.
How about you?
