WO Aaron Murphy Wins The Lord Strathcona Medal

Last night I had the extreme pleasure of attending my younger brother‘s Annual Ceremonial Review. Yes that’s right I said pleasure. In the past I avoided this event like the plague. However I enjoyed last night’s ceremony very much.

The highlight of the evening was during the awards presentation when Aaron was awarded The Lord Strathcona Medal. It was great to see him get something that I know he has worked very hard for. It was also nice to hear the loud “YES!!!” resound from my parents when his name was announced.

Aaron is a Warrant Officer for the 2415 Gonzaga Army Cadets and hopes to continue his advanced training this summer by completing the Parachutist Course. Most recently, he attended a special training camp called exercise “Sub-Zero” in Wentworth, Nova Scotia. He was one of the 16 Cadets chosen to attend from Atlantic Canada.
