This Remembrance Day

On November 11, Lt(N) Derek Carter will proudly serve as Nursing Officer for the national Remembrance Day ceremony in Ottawa.

“It is with great honour and pride that I have been selected as the Nursing Sentry on Remembrance Day in Ottawa, Ontario. The opportunity to represent the Canadian Armed Forces, the Canadian Forces Health Services Group and the Nursing community is a privilege as I stand sentry, honouring and remembering those who have dedicated and continue to dedicate their service to our great country.”

Lt(N) Carter is from Port-aux-Basques, Newfoundland, and enrolled in the CAF in 1990. He is currently the Mental Health Section Lead for the Integrated Healthcare Team within the CF Health Services Centre (Pacific).

He was selected for the honour as part of the Remembrance Day Sentry Program. The Program annually recognizes outstanding Regular and Reserve Force Canadian Armed Forces members as well as Royal Canadian Mounted Police members, for the dedication and professionalism they consistently display, both at work and within their communities.
