2017 marks the 75th anniversary of the Dieppe Raid, also known as Operation JUBILEE. Canada's experiences in war have been marked by great triumphs but also by harsh setbacks. The Dieppe Raid during the Second World War was one of the darkest chapters in Canada's military history. It did, however, help lead to important lessons being learned.
2017 marque le 75e anniversaire du raid sur Dieppe, aussi connu comme l'opération JUBILEE. L'histoire du Canada en temps de guerre est ponctuée de grandes victoires, mais aussi de sévères défaites. Le raid sur Dieppe pendant la Seconde Guerre mondiale est l'un des chapitres les plus sombres de l'histoire militaire du Canada. Toutefois, il a permis de tirer d'importantes leçons.

A retired soldier from Inverness has landed a spot on Team Canada for the Invictus Games, which will be held in Canada for the first time later this summer.
Carson MacIssac, a former Canadian Army Combat Engineer, was medically released from service in 2013 after being diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder.
The Invictus Games was started in 2014 to help servicemen and women like MacIssac, who have been injured during service, find motivation to move on. For MacIssac, they are doing just that.
The Department of National Defence and the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) recently announced the release of findings from the 2016 Mental Health Expert Panel report on Suicide Prevention in the Canadian Armed Forces.
The panel found that the CAF has a strong suicide prevention program and that access and availability of mental health services for serving military personnel are greater than the Canadian civilian population, but that there is room for improvement.

For one week in June, more than 150 veterans, first responders and everyday Canadians cycled more than 600 kilometres across Europe as part of Wounded Warriors Canada's (WWC) Battlefield Bike Ride.
An annual campaign to raise funds for WWC, this year's Battlefield Bike Ride commemorated the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge.
The eight-day journey, starting June 9, began in London, England and took the riders across the English Channel into France. Throughout the tour the group stopped at many memorable sites including the Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry Memorial, Passnchendael Canadian Memorial, Beaumont-Hamel and Tyne Cot Cemetery.

The Indian Army's Directorate of Combat Engineering is set to acquire GPS-based minefield recording equipment that'll help avoid casualties during the detection and defusion of landmines.
Detection and disposing of mines has always been a risky affair for Army units operating along border areas.
"The new equipment will be compatible to conditions in the Indian sub-continent," a senior army officer, who is aware of the development, told TOI recently.
Canadian Forces aircraft are on their way to British Columbia to assist with the province's out of control wildfires.
Federal Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale said that Ottawa had received and approved a request for help battling the hundreds of wildfires that have prompted a state of emergency in the province.
More than 400 military personnel are taking part in chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear defence training in Alberta.
Defence Research and Development Canada is co-ordinating Exercise PRECISE RESPONSE at Canadian Forces Base Suffield, according to a news release from the Canadian Forces.
The exercise runs until July 28.
The 14th annual NATO exercise is part of ongoing chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) defence training.

The Canadian Armed Forces is aiming to recruit indigenous youth and build skills along the way through its annual summer programming.
Bold Eagle, Black Bear and Raven, three summer camps located respectively in Wainwright, AB, Gagetown, N.B. and Esquimalt B.C., will offer Reserve Basic Military Qualification to approximately 150 indigenous youth this year.
Participants are enrolled as soldiers in the Primary Reserve of the Army or the Navy, and all courses begin with a four-day Culture Camp conducted by indigenous Elders and teachers.

CFB Suffield carried out its bi-yearly change of command ceremony recently with its usual pomp and circumstance, symbolic statements and military decorum.
A ritual now witnessed 20 times in the past 45 years through 21 different base commanders, faces in the crowd have changed but the essence of the ceremony has not.
Lt. Col. John Scott formally signed over command to his successor Lt. Col. Mike Onieu. Scott will return to Ottawa to resume his former specialty as a logistics officer, or as he puts it, "providing socks, beans and bullets to Canadian Armed Forces operations."
