On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Canadian Airborne Forces Association and in cooperation with the Airborne Regiment Association of Canada, I am pleased to announce that the recipient of this year’s $2000 Bursary from the Airborne Forces Scholarship Fund is:
Mr. Aidan Roland Fehr
Originating from White Rock BC, Aidan Fehr is commencing his third year as a full-time student at McGill University in Montreal, enrolled in a BA programme of studies in Political Science and Canadian Studies.
