Military service honoured for Vernon captain

Lisa Devine presented with Canadian Forces Decoration clasp.

Captain Lisa Devine has been presented with the clasp to her Canadian Forces Decoration (CD).

The CD is awarded to members of the Canadian Armed Forces who have served 12 years and the clasp recognizes an additional 10 years of military service.

The decoration is awarded to all ranks who have a good record of conduct.

It is a decagonal—10-sided, representing the 10 provinces—gold plated brass medal.

First awarded on Sept. 1, 1951, the medal replaced all other long service awards for those joining the Canadian Forces.

The decoration was initially issued in the King George VI type until 1954 when the new Queen Elizabeth II type became available.

About 2,400 decorations and 3,000 clasps are awarded annually.

The presentation to Devine was made at the annual Christmas Mess Dinner for cadets enrolled in 1705 Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps (BC Dragoons), their families and friends.
