Maple Ridge cadet best in platoon

Cadet Sarah Donaldson of Maple Ridge was named top cadet in her platoon at the Vernon Army Cadet Summer Training Centre.

Donaldson is a member of 1838 Royal Canadian Army Corps (Maple Ridge Legion, Branch No. 88).

She attended the three-week basic marksmanship instructor course in Vernon, where cadets learned the principles of accurate rifle shooting, and the skills necessary to conduct a summer biathlon.

Cadets were also taught the marksmanship techniques needed to improve their results in competitions.

During each summer, more than 1,200 army, sea and air cadets from across western Canada will spend up to six weeks in Vernon, expanding the training they receive at their home corps, developing new skills and forming new friendships.

The Cadet Program is a national program for young Canadians aged 12-18 who are interested in participating in a variety of fun, challenging and rewarding activities while learning about the sea, army and air activities of the Canadian Armed Forces.
