This summer, Millbrook resident Andrew Kim completed his degree at the Royal Military College as well as his military training and was formally received as an Officer into the Canadian Armed Forces in his Comissioning Ceremony held at the College which is located in Kingston, Ontario. Andrew is now a Second-Lieutenant in the Royal Canadian Air Force. He has been working at the 1st Canadian Division Headquarters in Kingston for the past 6 months as a finance officer learning the ropes. He is now preparing for his next move, as he has been posted to CFB Winnipeg as a Logistics Officer in the transportation department, where he expects to remain for several years. In his new position, he will be dealing with air movements, transporting troops and equipment and procuring supplies such as fuel. Anxious to continue building his skills, he will continue to train in the speciality components of the job, including complex manoeuvres such as air-to-air refueling. He hopes to spend complete some of this training at CFB Borden, a 22,300 acre base which is the birthplace of the Royal Canadian Air Force located outside Barrie, Ontario. It also houses the largest training wing of the Armed Forces, a fire-fighting school, Military Police school, a chaplaincy school, and is occasionally used by the Toronto Police Service’s Emergency Task Force also trains there occasionally. There are two golf courses located in its residential section, which may allow Andrew the opportunity to hone his golf skills so he can compete with his very proficient father, Minh Kim, on the occasional weekend trip home.
