Rangers complete historic patrol
Canadian Rangers finished a 1,000-kilometre “sovereignty” patrol this month that took them from Eureka to Alert.
That makes them the first Canadian Forces members to ever travel overland from Eureka to Alert, over ground that never before has been travelled on.
The patrol was made up of Sgt. Paddy Aqiatasuk of Resolute Bay, Cpl. Manasie Noah of Grise Fiord, along with Major Stewart Gibson and Warrant Officer Kevin Mulhern of Canadian Ranger Patrol Headquarters.
