The setting sun provided the perfect backdrop for the end-of-summer rite that is graduation from the Vernon Army Camp’s Summer Training Centre.
The 70th Final Parade and Sunset Ceremony was held Thursday at Dieppe Square, with Review Officer Col. Matthew Haussmann taking the final salute from the parade commander.
Haussmann inspected the cadets in the Guard prior to taking the final salute, accompanied by senior staff cadets and current Commanding Officer Lt.-Col. Miroslav Novak.
Novak was joined by special guests Lyle Johnson, Fern Daigneault and Doug Walton, all former Vernon Cadet Training Centre Commanding Officers. Walton was accompanied by Denis Dufresne.
