Canadian Army Command Team’s Statement for Mother’s Day 2017

Commander's Message / May 12, 2017 / Project number: ncr-cm-17-05-12

May 14, 2017

On this Mothers' Day, Chief Warrant Officer Alain Guimond and I want to pay tribute to all mothers, mother figures and care-givers who are part of the Canadian Army family. These strong, dedicated women offer us their generous love, patience and guidance and help shape who we are as people.

Every day, mothers offer boundless support, wisdom, and compassion. This year, we especially want to recognize those mothers who have lost loved ones and those who support our ill and injured; they have made and continue to make special sacrifices that should never be taken for granted.

In the Canadian Army, we share unique challenges and experiences such as deployments, training, and long hours spent at work. This makes family time particularly precious, and I welcome all members and their families to celebrate Mother’s Day as a reminder of what truly matters.

I invite everyone to join me, along with CWO Guimond, in thanking the remarkable women in our lives. I wish you all a wonderful Mother’s Day.
