National Pride

Heroes Remember

I wouldn’t say an addiction but you feel the pride and you only get that when you wear your tans. I mean you are proud of your uniform and the green relish but when you put on the tans that means you are going through training for something that is even more exciting than what you already do. You are representing your country, not just representing your regiment but you are speaking on behalf of Canada. That was always the thing I wanted to reach for my entire career and when I finally got to do it. I remember doing pre-deployment training and some of the instructors would say, “And you’re still smiling!” And I said, “This is all I have wanted to do!” And I was proud to do it.

Ms. Dalcourt speaks about the pride she feels in serving and representing her country.
