Veteran Nunavik Ranger up for Order of Military Merit

Charlie Arngak of Kangiqsujuaq will be awarded the Order of Military Merit for almost 50 years of active service in the Canadian Rangers. The award was announced by the Rangers Nov. 24 during Kativik Regional Government council meetings. Arngak, 67, is also an executive member of the KRG regional council. “His experience over the years in the self-sufficient mobile forces working in some of the most isolated and remote terrain in the country has made him a mentor and a highly respected member of his unit,” said Benoit Mainville, lieutenant-colonel with the 2nd Canadian Ranger Patrol Group. The Governor General will award the medal to Arngak in the new year. (Photo courtesy of KRG)
