Proudly demonstrating what it means to Support Our Troops Stephen Gregory’s commitment to supporting the Canadian Armed Forces and Canadian Veterans is extensive and impressive. You may see him on the streets in Montreal and beyond, catching eyes and attention in his CADPAT truck with a yellow Support Our Troops ribbon on the hood, as he is out meeting with individuals to recruit for the reserves, or with corporate leaders to build bridges with the military community. Gregory is an Honorary Colonel with the 2nd Field Regiment, Royal Canadian Artillery in Montreal, where he develops stronger ties with the community, supports recruitment activities, and provides advice and assistance with employment transitions. He is the Founder of Operation HUSKY 2013, a 22-day, 300 km march to commemorate the Canadian campaign in Sicily. This extraordinary event, the culmination of more than six years of planning and coordination, was first held in 2013 to mark the 70th anniversary of the campaign, and will be held again this summer in honour of the 75th anniversary. He has led or participated in countless fund-raising events on behalf of CAF members, veterans, and families, and is a member of the Royal Canadian Legion and active participant in the Poppy Campaign. Perhaps most notable, Gregory is the Director of Banner Sales for the RESPECT Campaign, which builds awareness and raises funds to help troops suffering with PTSD and as well as homeless veterans. Corporations can buy and display RESPECT banners inside or outside of their facilities from 8 April to 13 Nov of each year. Banners are available at http://respectcanada.org/pages/banners.html.
