Have you RSVP'd for this historic event yet? Only TWO WEEKS left!

forms.gle/3HGieU12YZW8oUka7It is at this time we proudly announce that after completing his term as the Commanding Officer (CO) of the Squadron, Major Neil DePass will be passing off command of the #540GoldenHawks to Lieutenant Anthony Vukojevic this fall!

Lt Vukojevic will not only be the squadron’s youngest CO to take command at the age of 23, he will also be the very first to go from recruit to CO — promoted through all the ranks, from Air Cadet to Captain — all at the same unit, 540 Squadron.

Lt Vukojevic brings with him fresh experiences to the CO’s position. He has held various positions at the local, area, and regional levels of the #CadetProgram. As well as having experience at a couple Cadet Training Centres across the province.

This new chapter in 540’s history will see some changes, which we believe will make 540 Squadron even greater. As we slowly exit the pandemic, Lt Vukojevic’s mantra of “bringing the golden days back to 540” will see some new, refreshed and exciting ideas being brought to life — some great opportunities for the youth of our community.

We hope you will join us in wishing Maj DePass all the best in his future endeavours and in welcoming Lt Vukojevic as he assumes the role of Commanding 540 Golden Hawks Squadron! #540Proud

At our 71st Annual Ceremonial Review this past weekend, we had the honour of hosting a special guest during our final practice and lunch hour.

The Honourable Anita Anand, Minister of National Defence and Member of Parliament for Oakville, stopped by to spend some time talking with our #540Cadets. As well, she presented Warrant Officer Second Class Owen Boldt with his Lord Strathcona Medal — the highest honour a cadet can receive.

On behalf of our Commanding Officer and especially the cadets of #540GoldenHawks, we would like to thank you Ma’am for taking the time to talk with our leaders of tomorrow. We look forward to your future visits and hope you find a great home for our 540 Golden Hawks display on your desk at National Defence Headquarters in Ottawa!

🏆 Yesterday was a jammed pack day for our #540cadets! For the first time in two years, we had our Annual Ceremonial Review (ACR) parade to mark the completion of yet another unique training year. As well, we were able to celebrate — together in-person — the many successes and accomplishments that our cadets achieved.

🥰 Thank you Major Lisa LaCombe for being our reviewing officer! All of our graduating cadets joined as recruits with #540goldenhwaks with you as their CO and Lt Vukojevic as their WO1. It was truly a full circle moment that our cadets will always cherish in their hearts.

🥳 Congratulations to all who received awards and recognitions! You continue to make us #540Proud.

As we near the end of another unique taining year, the senior cadets and staff at #540GoldenHawks are always looking and planning ahead.

As part of our succession planning, and to ensure that there is enough time for our current warrants to train the next generation, the Commanding Officer promoted a bunch of deserving cadets to the rank of WO2 at April CO’s parade and two more last night at our May CO’s parade.

Please join us in congratulating our new team of Warrant Officer Second Classes! #BravoZulu all — well deserved.
