SPECIAL AWARDS & PRESENTATIONS
Commanding Officer's Commendations formally recognize individuals who go above and beyond in duty to the cadet corps.
Each Commanding Officer’s Parade, a deserving cadet is recognized for their exemplary commitment to their drill, dress, and deportment. The individual is presented with a certificate, and is entitled to wear the “Top Cadet” brassard during the set period authorized by the Commanding Officer.
There are many examples of traditions that build camaraderie in a military environment, but few are as well-respected as the practice of carrying a challenge coin—a small medallion or token that recognizes an individual for an exemplary action, duty or merit. It is intended to be issued with a minimum of formality. The Coin is awarded strictly at the discretion of the Commanding Officer.
The Unit Coin is presented by the Commanding Officer of 2642.
Some cadets may choose to apply for the Canadian Armed Forces Basic Parachute Course at the Canadian Army Advanced Warfare Centre, in Trenton. There they’ll complete the necessary training to get them to the Mock Tower. The mock tower is used to simulate exiting an aircraft while parachuting. Upon completion of the mock tower phase of the training, candidates enter the “J ” (jump) stage of their course. 2677 is one of the few army cadet corps across Canada who conduct Mock Tower Jump Days, where each cadet has the opportunity to jump from the tower and simulate what it would be like to be a military parachutist. A short video on the mock tower can be seen here.
These tower wings are presented to a cadet who has completed three successful descents from a Mock Tower.
