Exercise CAPITAL FORCE 2, conducted 18-20 January 2019, saw the Domestic Response Company Capital with the Camerons as the lead unit augmented by elements from the Governor General’s Foot Guards, 33 Signals Regiment, 33 Service Battalion, 28 Field Ambulance, 7 Intelligence Coy and Canadian Forces Joint Imagery Centre conduct Offensive Operations which included Reconnaissance Patrols and Fighting Patrols. These tasks were successfully executed while enduring one of the coldest weekends in memory with temperatures as low as -27 degrees with a windchill of -34 degrees. Well done to all who participated.

It also saw three well deserved promotions to Cpl: Cpl Bolek, Cpl Evans and Cpl Salloum. Congratulations!

ADVANCE!
