Defence Team News – August 7, 2019

The Royal Canadian Navy is
currently visiting communities along the St. Lawrence Seaway
and Great Lakes as part of this year’s annual
Great Lakes Deployment. Her Majesty’s
Canadian Ship Oriole is this year’s
summer ambassador. The Great Lakes Deployment
provides Canadians with a unique opportunity to
tour one of Canada’s naval ships and to learn about life
in the Royal Canadian Navy directly from sailors. We spoke with Petty Officer
First Class Adam Yardy to learn more about
what it’s like sailing with Her Majesty’s
Canadian Ship Oriole. I feel good. It’s nice
to be onboard a ship that’s been meticulously
cared for by so many hands. You get to see
the public’s reaction. The Canadian public
doesn’t always get to see the care we take
in our vessels at sea and our sailors at sea.
They see us more on the news. It’s nice to have Oriole
in the public, alongside, answering questions about her, lead into why we have
HMCS Oriole, we’re here to show that we have a Navy,
we’re proud of our Navy, and that we get a chance
to talk about our Navy and educate people
about our Navy. Every time I get up
in the morning, at sea is a good day on Oriole, there’s no other way to say it.
Even in the roughest of days, right, it’s still
a good day to be onboard. ♪ ♪
