The Team Bond Back Again!

I don’t know if I have said it but it’s been a journey for me getting back into shape and feeling good about myself and it’s been a lot of fun getting back into a team and feeling that team bond that you get. So going with the team to Australia and my father, it’s been a fun experience and it’s going to be… I have been telling myself that the games is just an achievement at the end of my road of my journey of losing my vision. But each day there is always something new that I come across that I have come across before and we just have to figure out how to get through it. There’s going to be many more of those after being released from the military looking for another job and going to find out what I am doing next.

Aaron shares his positive experiences in the journey back to good health and the bond of friendship with family and friends that exists for him!

Mr. Aaron Boulanger was born in March 10, 1990 in Calgary, Alberta. As a child Aaron and family moved back to the Gagetown, New Brunswick. Coming from a military family with his dad and two brothers serving, Aaron realized he too would choose this career. After finishing high school Aaron joined the Navy and obtained his university degree at UNB under the support of the military.

As time passed Aaron made the choice to get healthy and by doing so was selected as part of Team Canada 2018 Invictus Games Team. Being blind did not stop Aaron from choosing the sport of archery and with his father by his side achieved his personal best during the games in Australia, October 2018. Aaron will be medically discharged from the military and looks forward to finding a new career path. He now resides in Oromocto, New Brunswick with his family.
