Hi everyone,
I wanted to get the word out that I have a new book just released titled "Canuck GI: The Peculiar Life of a Canadian Soldier." When I was in high school I was what you would consider a "late bloomer" in body and mind. I knew it was time to leave my parents home and I decided, after my father put the idea in my head, to join the army.

I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I headed for boot camp and although I was small for my age, my inner tenacity kept me going and before long I was a member of the 2nd Battalion, Royal Canadian Regiment. The military was nothing like anything I had imagined and I must admit I was caught off guard. But that didn't make me quit (although at times I really thought about it) and after 20 years (and a remuster to Aero Engine Technican) I retired.

I have put together a video about myself and my new website you can view below.
