Check out these highlights from FTX Dorado!

The fall FTX took place from October 13th to 15th, hosting an impressive turnout of 540’s enthusiastic cadets. The event featured a wide variety of survival courses, such as fish preparation, first aid, radio operation, and shelter construction. Cadets improved their abilities in these essential areas, making the FTX a valuable and enriching experience.

🧑 On September 26th during training, cadets at 540 observed and recognized the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. Along with wearing orange shirts, ribbons and other orange symbols, all cadets took part in educational seminars on the meaning of reconciliation and the history of mistreatment of Indigenous people of Canada and had time to reflect on how each of us can help to reconcile and support Indigenous people and educate others on the impacts of our history.

🟧The National Day for Truth and Reconciliation is an Indigenous-led commemorative day that honours the children who never returned home and the Survivors of residential schools, and their families and friends. This commemorative day is a pertinent part of reconciliation. The orange shirt symbolizes the stripping away of culture, freedom and self-esteem from Indigenous children over many generations.
