After five years as the Colonel Commandant of the Royal Canadian Army Cadets, Brigadier General (ret’d) Ray Romses passed the torch to Major-General (ret’d) Timothy Grant during the Rocky Mountain Cadet Training Centre graduation ceremony on 17 August 2018.
BGen Romses was appointed on August 15, 2013 and was the 10th Army officer to to be appointed Colonel Commandant of the Army Cadets. During his mandate, he met cadets from across the country, attended annual ceremonial reviews, visited all Cadet Training Centres and always had time to listen to cadets.
BGen Romses became an Army cadet in 1967. He became an infantry officer in 1972. We can say this is now a full circle for BGen Romses as he is about to start his second retirement!
The Army Cadet League of Canada would like to thank our retiring Colonel Commandant for his service, not only towards the Army Cadets, but also for his positive and significant role as a member of our National Executive Committee.
As we wish a happy 2nd retirement to BGen Romses, we also welcome our new Colonel Commandant, Major-General Timothy (Tim) James Grant OMM, MSC, CD (ret’d). MGen Grant started his military affiliation as an Air Cadet but further pursued his enrollment in the Canadian Forces as an armoured officer, and retired from the forces 31 years later.
While he remains active in a variety of roles within his community and province of Alberta, he welcomes his new appointed role as Colonel Commandant of the Royal Canadian Army Cadets.
The Army Cadet League of Canada is happy to welcome MGen (ret’d) Grant and looks forward to working with him on the National Executive Committee.
Welcome to our team.
