For three weeks in the month of August Major André Morin, the second in command of Les Fusiliers de Sherbrooke, was offered a rare and unusual opportunity. Based on his record and work with the local reserve regiment to date, Morin was selected as the only Canadian to attend the École supérieure des officiers de réserve spécialistes d’état-major (ESORSEM) in Paris, France, where he was trained in large scale military operations alongside 14 other representatives from nine allied countries. “Canada has one spot in this course,” Morin told The Record “and I got nominated to be the Canadian candidate.” See full story in the Thursday, Nov. 8 edition of The Record.
