H Coy's C/MWO Michelle Mackie. CSM Mackie has spent six years in cadets, three with air and the past three with 1705 BCD RC(Army)CC in Vernon BC. What does she like about being a CSM? "The everyday challenges." Her most significant inspiration in cadets has been Capt Mitch Steck, her Corps CO and the Deputy Chief Instructor of VACSTC. "He's opened my eyes, he's convinced me to look in more than one direction. I know I have more than one option. I really like his attitude, if you don't have respect you can't move on and you need to have respect between the CO and the RSM. CSM Mackie will be graduating from cadets in May 2008 and is planning a future in the RCMP and CIC.    (VACSTC, F. Arseneault)

This day in Canadian Military History...

18 July 1696

A French army of 2000 men (regulars, Canadian militia, and Mission Iroquois) are returning to Montreal from attacks on Onondaga villages south of Lake Ontario. Count Frontenac, now in his 74th year, accompanies the force.

18 July 1944

Operation Goodwood opens in Normandy this morning as RAF and RCAF bombers launch repeated attacks on the enemy defences in and around Caen. The bombardment is a prelude of the Canadian attempt to clear Caen and push the Germans southwards towards Falaise.
