My name is Jason and I have been a Canadian Armed Forces for 12 years. I am a Sergeant, currently posted with 1RCR in Petawawa, in the communication fields as a Signal Operator. My wife and I have 2 children, Olivia age four and Liam age seven. We spent the first seven years of our military life at CFB Kingston and were posted to CFB Petawawa 4 years ago. I have been on four deployments since 2001, one of these being to Afghanistan in 2006. Work up training is beginning now for my next deployment to Afghanistan in April 2010.
