Awards

Corporal Eric Monnin M.M.V. as a Glen serving in Afghanistan was recognized for bravery and has been awarded the Medal of Military Valour.

 

His citation reads:

 

"On July 9, 2010, two of Corporal Monnin's fellow solders were wounded during a combat operation in Afghanistan. Under increasing enemy fire, he requested permission to move forward and then sprinted across the exposed terrian to reach their position. As bullets continued to fly, he rendered first aid, assisted with the wounded soldiers' extraction, and rejoined his platoon for the remainder of the engagement. Whether rendering first aid and under fire or engaging the enemy, Corporal Monnin saved the lives of his comrades through his courageous and selfless actions."

 

All Glens congratulate Cpl Monnin on receiving this valour award and are proud that he carried out this action while serving as a member of the Stormont, Dundas & Glengarry Highlanders.

Master Warrant Officer Gerald Colgan was appointed a Member of the Order of Military Merit for his outstanding and exemplary services to the Canadian Forces, the Army Reserve, and the Regiment.

 

All Glens congratulate now CWO Colgan on being a recipient of this prestigious military award.
