Reserve Contribution




One of the facets of the 2 PPCLI commendation that distinguishes it from other missions, including the performance of the Battalion at Medak, is the magnitude and size of the reserve contribution to the 2 PPCLI team for this operation. About 50 reserve units from across the country generated approximately 400 reserve soldiers of a wide range of ranks and trades for Operation HARMONY.  With the passage of time, individuals may have retired, transferred to other units, or between components.  These veterans will today be found in many other places throughout the Army, CF or beyond.
