Change of Command 37 CER
CMEA
As with any organization, leadership can change, but the core fundamentals established from the beginning must remain. The key issues and challenges presented in commanding a Reserve unit can test even the most professional solider. It is the ability to leave the unit in a better position that is the true test of a Commanding Officers influence. From the standing up of 37 Combat Engineer Regiment in March 2012, LCol. Bruce Parks has shown all the troops under his command what true dedication is and how strong leadership results in positive progression throughout the entire Regiment. LCol Parks balanced his family life with a long career in the Canadian Forces. LCol Parks is happily married to the former Tamera (Tammy) Campbell of Oromocto with two daughters, Kristen and Malinda.

Passation de Commandement 37 RGC
AGMC
Comme pour toute organisation, la direction peut changer, mais les principes centraux établis depuis le début doivent rester en place. Les plus grands enjeux et défis liés au commandement d'une unité de réserve peuvent compliquer la tâche même des militaires les plus expérimentés. C'est la capacité de quitter une unité dans une meilleure position qui indique véritablement l'influence d'un commandant. Depuis la mise sur pied du 37e Régiment du génie de combat en mars 2012, le Lcol Bruce Parks a montré à tous les militaires sous son commandement ce que signifie un véritable dévouement et comment un leadership solide a des effets positifs sur tout le Régiment. Il a été en mesure de trouver un équilibre entre sa vie personnelle et une longue carrière dans les Forces armées canadiennes. Il est marié et heureux avec Tamera (Tammy) Campbell, d'Oromocto, et a deux filles, Kristen et Malinda.

U.S. Army
Troops often use abandoned masonry, brick or cinder block structures for defensive purposes instead of building their own or digging fox holes.

Meet the Cicadas: U.S. military unveils new swarm of mini-drones
CTV News
U.S. military scientists have invented a miniature drone that fits in the palm of a hand, ready to be dropped from the sky like a mobile phone with wings. The "micro air vehicle" is named after the insect that inspired its invention, the Cicada, which spends years underground before appearing in great swarms, reproducing and then dropping to the ground dead. "The idea was why can't we make UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) that have the same sort of profile," Aaron Kahn of the Naval Research Laboratory told AFP.
