Enlistment into Royal Canadian Air Cadets

Both my son and I have enlisted in to 652 Squadron Milford and District Lions Club Royal Canadian Air Cadets.
I'm in the process of switching over from Navy League to Air Cadets.

Air Cadet Redden at Halloween party. He's wearing a Canadian Forces Olive Combat shirt, his chest rig was from a Halloween costume set he got two years ago. His cap is a Korean Reserve Army which I bought in South Korea in 1997.
