This week’s Favourite Photo is a throwback photo shot by MCpl Marc-Andre Gaudreault on November 21, 2013.

The image features a sign with various cities and points of interest installed on a Canadian Armed Forces Camp during Operation RENAISSANCE in Roxas City, Philippines.

The Disaster Assistance Response Team (AFT) deployed on the operation in response to Typhoon Haiyan hitting the Philippines on November 8, 2013. At its height, 319 Canadian Armed Forces personnel were deployed on Operation RENAISSANCE.

The operation ran from November 13 to December 15, 2013, just in time for CAF personnel to be home for Christmas.

Cyndi Mills

Admittedly the Queen of Typos, Cyndi Mills strives for none, but one or two always seems to slip in. She apologizes! Over the last 27 years Cyndi has had the opportunity to move around the country with her husband, Scott and their four children. Having lived in Chilliwack, Edmonton, London, and Petawawa. She stumbled into the world of journalism by accident – looking for a career that could give her the flexibility to work from home to be with her children and support her husband's military career. Cyndi is also a military parent as her two oldest children are in the military. Raising her third and fourth teenagers, she tries to keep sane by walking, gardening, writing, and spending time with her family while running Canadian Military Family Magazine.
