The March 8 event is another opportunity to talk about the fundamentals of diversity and equity, Gloumeau says. Here now, one of the things we deal with is impressing on our younger women is our history they know the Canadian Forces is integrated, but we re still falling short of targets to include women. Great strides were made in the past in Canada and the Canadian Forces, but we want to see those continue. The CF has a target of being a 25 per cent female organization: in 2012, the enlistment pendant qu elles auront grandi et fait leurs études. Le D r Breeck est un ancien médecin militaire des FC et est maintenant une conférencière qui vit à Ottawa. L activité de la Journée internationale de la femme est ouverte à tous les employés des Forces canadiennes et du rate for women was just 14.8 per cent. Seeing women advance to higher ranks and take on larger roles and responsibilities is something, Gloumeau feels, all Canadians should have an interest in. Killing Us Softly #4 showcases some thought-provoking images in media and advertising, and Gloumeau says tomorrow s CF women will have been affected by these images as they grow and are educated. Breeck is a former CF medical officer and now a frequent speaker living in Ottawa. The International Women s Day event is open to all Canadian Forces and DND employees of 14 Wing.

3 MULTIPLE LISTING SERVICE the Aurora 14 Wing Greenwood, NS Page 3 413, 405 involved in Miss Ally SAR effort Sara Keddy, Managing editor Search and rescue crews from 14 Wing Greenwood, the Canadian and American Coast Guards, Department of Fisheries and a number of smaller vessels ceased a search for the Miss Ally, after the search and rescue region commander granted a search reduction February 19. A search reduction results when all probable chances for survival are exhausted. The men - Katlin Nickerson, Tyson Townsend, Joel Hopkins and Steve Cole Nickerson of Woods Harbour; and Billy Hatfield of Cape Sable Island - were aboard the Miss Ally, a 45-foot fishing boat out of Woods Harbour, which sent out an emergency signal at 11 p.m. February 17. The Joint Rescue Coordination Centre in Halifax responded to the call, approximately 120 kilometres southeast of Liverpool, with its search and rescue resources. Crews covered more than 7,000 square miles of ocean off the south shore of Nova Scotia, using a Royal Canadian Air Force CH-149 Cormorant helicopter, CC-130 Hercules aircraft, and CP-140 Aurora aircraft from 14 Wing; as well as the Canadian Coast Guard ships William Alexander and Earl Grey.

Warrant Officer Conrad Cowan, 413 (Search and Rescue) Squadron was called into the search with his stand-by crew February 18 around 6:30 a.m. Personnel were already heading into work, so were on deck within minutes. Their Cormorant left for the scene and spent a total of 10.2 hours in the air, with two trips to Shearwater to refuel. We saw the two Coast Guards ships in the vicinity of the overturned vessel, and there was a debris field running with the current as a searcher, that s a good sign, Cowan said. We started our search pattern, working in and picking up things. Cowan said the sea state was the worst he s seen while posted at 14 Wing: 10 metre rollers, waves cresting over each other, snow squalls and a low ceiling. He credited the helicopter s flying crew for holding it together. A second Cormorant left Greenwood when Cowan s returned that evening, and a third trip went back out to the search area February 19 at first light.

RCMP NS You never lose hope, but we were really feeling anxious heading out there. We rehearsed a rescue on the way, hoping we d have a life raft and be able to do a cable and lift that s what we were all hoping for. We were really, really hoping to find someone. Captain Michael Austin, 405 Squadron, 14 Wing, said the Aurora was on duty close to seven hours, including halfan-hour of flying time both to and from the search area. While it is not common for Auroras to be involved with SAR, crews are trained and the plane is equipped with a SKAD (Sea Kit Air Droppable) unit, which includes two life rafts connected by buoyant rope and other supplies. The 13-member crew manned rear side viewing windows and conducted visual searches into Monday night, and also used the plane s radar but it is difficult when you are looking for a dinghy, he acknowledged, in the expanse of ocean being searched and its stormy condition. The crew did not see anything, although it was able to track an emergency signal for a period. By 6 p.m. February 19, responders determined any hope of the men s survival had diminished significantly due to careful consideration of the call and survivability models. Search time was well beyond estimated cold water immersion survival times. The matter was turned over to RCMP as a recovery operation and missing persons case, MARCH BREAK SPECIAL March Mon, Wed and Fri 12-4pm ALL YOU CAN BOWL $ HST INCLUDES SHOES LOCAL pinbowling.ca and the agency requested the support of the Department of National Defence and the Coast Guard in its recovery efforts. The Miss Ally was relocated around 9:30 a.m. February 23, 25 nautical miles from the last emergency signal heard. Early February 24, a remotely operated vehicle from HMCS Glace Bay entered the water and conducted an underwater assessment of the over-turned hull of the Miss Ally, capturing imagery which prompted the Fleet Diving Unit to recommend against additional diving operations. No bodies were found. An Aurora Block III aircraft from 14 Wing supported the RCMP s efforts with an overnight flight February 23 into February 24. Meanwhile, both the Cormorant and Hercules from 413 Squadron were placed on a 30-minute standby posture February 24, to expedite search and rescue response in the event of a further mishap at the scene. There were no incidents, and crews went back to the normal two-hour posture by noon.

4 Page 4 Cadets, careers and choices Paramedics offered Cadets a show and tell chance to see what their work is like. the Aurora 14 Wing Greenwood, NS Sara Keddy, Managing editor Eric Belanger hasn t thought too far ahead yet, but his experience as a member of the 517 F/Lt Graham Air Cadets could sure help. Close to 110 of the group s Cadets were sent through a career showcase February 13 at their Birchall Centre meeting space, word scramble in hand: by asking questions of visiting working professionals, they would be given a letter that could hold the key to not only a secret phrase, but also inspiration for their future. I don t know for sure, Belanger, age 12, said. I kind of want to work on a Cormorant like my dad does. Cadet squadron Commanding Officer Major William Montgomery said, while Cadets have no obligation to go into the military, there are basic skills learned in Cadets public speaking, standing up and putting thoughts together - that stay with you all your life. He knows all too well how hard it can be to make life decisions: when he went to Acadia University for an arts degree, they wanted me to pick a major I didn t want to. Being exposed to a variety of opportunities like what was on offer at the career night this evening is what Montgomery himself was looking for. We wanted a range of programs and people, and the feedback from people coming here has been good. Invited guests included a number of 14 Wing Greenwood professionals, from Canadian Forces search and rescue technicians to a civilian worker with health promotion; media radio and print, paramedics, dental professionals, photographers and more. PSP Health Promotion manager Lisa White shared some hands on advice with Cadets about the effects of drugs and alcohol on physical ability. Her simulated impairment goggles were eye-opening. Corporal J.Reynolds, 14 AMS Wing Imaging Les leçons de vie et de leadership contribuent au succès Sara Keddy, Rédactrice en chef «Je ne savais vraiment pas», racontait Jim Irvine le 13 février «que je venais de me joindre au meilleur programme de développement de carrière au Canada.» Maintenant le commandant de la 14 e Escadre Greenwood, le colonel Jim Irvine a offert aux cadets de l Escadron des cadets de l Air Flight 517 Flight Lieutenant Graham de sages conseils sur le leadership ainsi que l importance d être ouvert aux possibilités et de ne pas avoir peur. «Lorsque j avais 13 ans, j étais un tout nouveau cadet à Winnipeg et je ne savais vraiment pas ce que je voulais faire. Mon père et ma mère m ont recommandé les cadets, et j ai pensé que j allais me renseigner à propos du pilotage j aimais les avions, mon père travaillait dans ce domaine et j étais un enfant de la Force aérienne.» Même si le Col Irvine a admis que sa première expérience à bord d un petit avion a été plutôt retournante, il a trouvé son créneau dans la Force aérienne en tant que pilote de divers aéronefs, dont récemment l Aurora. «Je peux vous dire que je ne serais certainement pas ici aujourd hui n eut été de l organisation des cadets de l Air, et de l influence d officiers cadets et d instructeurs civils tout comme vous.» Le Col Irvine a demandé au groupe quel genre de leçons de leadership les jeunes devraient tenter d apprendre. «La première, la plus importante chose en ce qui concerne le leadership est de savoir comment suivre. Recevoir des ordres, savoir quel est l objectif et écouter ses supérieurs ensuite, mener ses pairs et continuer. Si vous ne pouvez pas suivre, vous ne pouvez pas bien mener.» Savoir travailler en équipe dans tout environnement est essentiel «durant toute votre vie», de poursuivre le Col Irvine : «La somme des parties est beaucoup plus grande que ce qu on peut faire par soi-même.» Le leadership transformationnel est aussi un défi : si vous criez après les gens, de dire le colonel Irvine, pour leur faire faire quelque chose, cela veut dire qu ils ne vous respecteront pas. «Lorsque vous travaillez avec des gens avec qui vous voulez aussi être amis, vous devez les convaincre de ce qu est la meilleure chose à faire c est là le meilleur genre de leadership.» Tout cela a des racines profondes dans le succès dès un jeune âge. Le Col Irvine explique que les défis et les nouvelles leçons apprendre comment survivre en hiver, piloter, compétitionner dans des exercices de drill, passer des semaines loin de la maison dès un jeune âge lui ont tous montré qu il pouvait le faire. «L autonomie, le fait de se fier à son entraînement, comprendre que vous pouvez le faire vous pouvez conquérir votre peur lorsque vous êtes jeune.» Transformer ces leçons et même ces rêves en une carrière nécessite de prendre en considération ce que vous voulez, et ce dont vous avez besoin. «L argent est important», de dire le Col Irvine. «Vous voulez une belle vie, une maison et tout ce qu il faut pour vous occuper de vos enfants. Mais ce n est pas la chose la plus importante. «Trouvez quelque chose que vous aimez, quelque chose qui fait que vous vous levez le matin et que vous dites «Ben j ai pas tant d argent que ça mais je m amuse.» Life, leadership lessons......cover Force as a pilot of many different aircraft, most recently the Aurora. I can tell you for a fact, I would not be here today if it wasn t for the Air Cadet organization, and the influence of Cadet officers and civilian instructors just like you have. What kind of leadership lessons should young people be focusing on learning, Irvine asked the group. The first, most important thing about leading is knowing how to follow. Taking orders, knowing what the goal is and listening to superiors then, lead your peers and follow on. If you can t follow, you can t lead well. Working as a team in any environment is crucial your entire life, Irvine said: the sum of the parts is much greater than working on your own. Transformational leadership is also a challenge: yelling at people, Irvine said, to get them to get things done, means they won t respect you. Working with people you also want to be friends with, you have to convince them of what the right thing to do is that s the best kind of leadership. All of that comes from solid roots in early success. Irvine said challenges and new lessons learning how to survive in winter, fly, compete in drill exercises, be away from home for weeks at a time at a young age all showed he could do it. Self-reliance, relying on your training, understanding you can do it you can conquer your fear when you re young. Turning those lessons and even dreams - into a career involves consideration of what you want, and what you need. Money is important, Irvine said. You want a good lifestyle, a home and to be able to provide for your kids. But it s not the most important thing. Find something you love, something you can get up in the morning and say, Man, I don t have a lot of money but this is fun.

Submitted Building a future House becomes a home with volunteer hands Sara Keddy, Managing editor Tracy Chisholm s inexperienced efforts to hang drywall or build basement steps as part of a Habitat for Humanity team add up. You realize you have something to contribute you re providing a foundation for a house, but also for a future. Chisholm is a software system specialist with 14 Wing Greenwood s simulator at 404 Squadron, and she s putting more and more nails into Habitat for Humanity projects around the world as she more fully appreciates what the organization means. In Honduras and Haiti, a safe, secure, solid home is one thing; it means something else in recent builds here in the Valley. The need is greater there, but the fact people are in more dire straits doesn t change the fact there are issues with housing here mould, leaks, security, housing situations that are not OK it s not a competition to see who s worse off, she says. Her first experience with Habitat for Humanity was Discover Driving Certified Driving Instruction Driver Education Defensive Driving Seniors Safety Private Lessons (902) DRIVER EDUCATION CLASSES Middleton at NSCC March Greenwood Saturdays starting April 20 Accepting students 15 1 /2 years and older Visit our web page for more information Serving the Annapolis Valley Support the advertisers that stand behind your military DND file in Montreal 10 years ago, when her workplace spent a Saturday volunteering at a housing project. Home in Nova Scotia on vacation more recently, she spent two-and-a-half weeks helping at a four-home build in Lower Sackville. Eighty per cent of the volunteers on the site were women, and she says the YOUR FINANCES ARE NOT ALWAYS AN OPEN BOOK! VOS FINANCES NE SONT PAS TOUJOURS UN LIVRE OUVERT! Seek advice and invest in your future today to live life the way you want tomorrow! Add experience, expertise to the next build Canadian Forces personnel moving across Canada and beyond may be in a unique position to know just how important a home is. That s what makes them valuable volunteers at a Habitat for Humanity build project. They come, they work hard, they clean up and go home, says Tracy Chisholm, a 14 Wing Greenwood civilian worker. The support of the base is really tremendously helpful as the Valley Habitat for Humanity chapter gets set for its second build. Project administrator and fundraising chairwoman Belinda Manning says crews from 14 Wing Greenwood helping at last year s first Valley build worked their butts off. And then some of them came to the dedication ceremony with the family, and it was really great to see them what a huge accomplishment! Anyone interested in pitching in as the project digs in this spring is encouraged to contact Habitat for Humanity, gmail.com. Manning says build volunteers are always needed but, to get to that point, the experience was really great. It showed me I can do this. Chisholm signed up for an international project in Honduras, where volunteers worked alongside a beautiful family to build a home. She continued to help out in Montreal, and then was happy to find a year-old Habitat for Humanity chapter in the Valley when she started work in Greenwood last year. The Valley chapter had just finished its first home in Wolfville, and is now ready to build another this summer in New Minas. Chisholm has signed on as the group s secretary and build committee vice-chairman. A safe home is something Master Corporal Nathalie Gelineau shovels new top soil for the front lawn. Volunteers from 14 Air Maintenance Squadron, 14 Wing Greenwood, put in a day of yard work last fall at the Habitat for Humanity housing project in Wolfville.

Demandez conseil et investissez dans votre avenir dès aujourd hui pour vivre comme vous le souhaitez demain! these people would never have been able to have, and it changes things for the family for the long run. I ve realized how important it is to have a home from which to go forward every day, and then come back to. Every creature on Earth needs a home but so many people don t have one.
