Cadet Aiden Armstrong of Comox was selected as the best cadet in 14 Platoon in the second intake of General Military Training at Vernon Army Cadet Summer Training Centre.
Cadet Armstrong is a member of 1726 Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps, Comox.
Armstrong and 175 other army cadets attended the Army Cadet General Military Training Course, which sees the cadets introduced to communal living, participate in an overnight Basic Trades Field Exercise, challenge the mini confidence course, improve their accuracy with the air rifle, take part in a summer biathlon, learn orienteering and receive information on more senior courses that will be available to them in the coming years.
During the summer, more than 1,100 Army Cadets from Western Canada will spend up to six weeks in the Okanagan Valley training centre, expanding the training they receive at their home corps, developing new skills and forming friendships.
