Chilliwack, British Columbia — MCpl Kevin Drobot (third from left) of 39 Combat Engineer Regiment supervises the linking of pontoons to assemble a medium raft on December 29, 2012, during Exercise PALADIN REPONSE.

Approximately 200 Army Reserve Combat Engineers and supporting arms from Western Canada and Ontario participated in Ex PALADIN RESPONSE 2012 around Chilliwack, British Columbia, over the holiday season.

This exercise enabled sappers to develop their technical and leadership skills in gap crossings of water and obstacles. The domestic operations scenario emphasized cooperation with other arms and services within the Army’s Territorial Battalion Group (TBG) model.
