Paying Tribute to an Officer and a Gentleman: 2652 Colonel (Ret’d) A Britton Smith, MC, CD, Ld’H(F), QC, LLD (RMC), LLD (Queens) 1920-2023
Brit will be remembered as a soldier, entrepreneur, community leader, philanthropist, but most importantly he will be remembered for his humility, and sense of humour.
“His humility and giving nature led to unparalleled philanthropy over the years, enabling countless affordable housing and health-care projects to help individuals and families. His generosity has left a lasting mark on the community, a legacy of meeting the needs of others. He will be greatly missed.” – Mayor Bryan Patterson, City of Kingston, and Assistant Professor Economics Department RMC (Source Ottawa Business Journal)
Interview with 20714 Steven Boychyn, RMC Class of 1997
When CMR and RRMC were closed, a great number of traditions were changed at the amalgamated RMC/CMR, but the change in the way we all wore our college #5’s (aspects taken from each of the colleges) didn’t change the fact that wearing the uniformed identified us a team that needed to be cohesive and competent. Allowing for individual aspects to be recognized and celebrated is created by making space for everyone to participate and learn; the practical application of respecting the dignity of all persons.
Letters to my Parents from 60 Years Ago – Part 2
Drill is a formal course but it cannot be called interesting or enjoyable, only hard work. But, I don’t mind it because I know I have a lot to learn. Sports are getting tough right now because we are getting instruction in football, soccer and track and field. The football instruction involves some of the most sadistically devised exercises. The worst was tackling this great big dummy. It would not move unless you nearly killed yourself leaping at it. Soccer isn’t quite as bad, but it’s still no fun. The worst however is the track and field. We have instruction in sprinting, hurdles, high jump, broad jump, hop, skip & jump, shot put, discus, javelin and cross-country. Most aren’t too bad and some are even fun, especially the javelin. The cross-country is the worst. We have to run over three miles in this event and you can imagine what it’s like — puff-puff!!! At least I don’t collapse, only just about.
Citadel Cadet studies abroad at the Royal Military College of Canada
It was the phrase, “Opportunity begets opportunity,” that drove Cadet Sam Wilson, Class of 2025, to apply for the Killam Fellowship, which would give him the opportunity to study abroad for a semester in Canada. Though he is not the first Citadel cadet to earn the Fellowship – that distinction goes to former Cadet Thomas Gomez, Class of 2021 – Wilson has the honor of being the first to study at the Royal Military College of Canada.
