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.

Air Cadet singing a song of rememberance which he was a soloist at his school

the veterans and cadets march from the Elmsdale Legion to the Elmsdale Cenotaph. The camera angle changes as I was trying to go for wide angle.
I am also in the process of switching over from Navy League to Air Cadets.
