The annual Exercise BISON WARRIOR

Army Reservist handles flood, fire, ice, university, sports, overseas deployment, polar bears and violin lessons

Winnipeg, Manitoba — Since Captain Ward Lentz became a Canadian Army (CA) Reservist in 2007, he has battled fire and flood, marvelled at the Northern Lights in the icy North, served as a Reserve infantry instructor, and supported security at the G8 and G20 summits in 2010, all within Canada. Following his deployment to Poland on Operation REASSURANCE Rotation 6 with the Regular Force in early 2017, he returned home with a new vigour for living life fully.
