CANADIAN FORCES ARMY RESERVE (INFANTRY)
“PART TIME SERVICE – FULL TIME REWARDS”
Canada’s Military consists of three elements: Army, Navy and Air Force. On Vancouver Island, the Canadian Forces Army Reserve, and within it, The Canadian Scottish Regiment is the part-time component of Canada’s National Defence. We volunteer to augment the Regular Force in Peacekeeping (Bosnia/Kosovo, Afghanistan), Humanitarian (Tzunami 2004, New Orleans) and Disaster Relief Operations (firestorms of BC, Winnipeg floods, ice storms of Quebec) locally and overseas. We are part-time soldiers working Wednesday nights and one weekend a month.
We as Infantry Soldiers belong to one of the infantry regiments of the Canadian Army, some of which bear battle honours more than a century old. Infantry Soldiers are the Army’s primary fighters and are capable of operating anywhere in the world, under any weather or environmental conditions (Arctic tundra, mountains, jungle or desert). The infantry's primary role is: "To close with and destroy the enemy."
