On Remembrance Day, November 11th, 2012 at 2:00pm Major Jason R. Snider will speak here at the MAG about his time served in Afghanistan.
Major Snider joined the Army reserves as an Artillery Officer in January 1991. He completed his initial phase training in CFB Gagetown, New Brunswick between 1991 and 1994. He released from the forces to pursue his studies in 1995, rejoining a year later in 1997. Since rejoining he has progressed through his training as a Artillery Officer, and was promoted to Captain in 2002, and Major in 2010.
Major Snider has primarily served with the 20th Field Regiment RCA, including being appointed as the Battery Commander for the 78th Field Battery RCA from 2005 to 2012. In 2012 he was appointed as the Deputy Commanding Officer of the Regiment.
Major Snider completed his Army Operations Course in July 2007, and then deployed to Afghanistan in February 2008 as a member of the Observer, Mentor and Liaison Team (OMLT). His tour in Afghanistan was primarily in FOB Wilson, in Zharey District, West of Kandahar City. He returned to Canada in September of 2008.
Major Snider completed his education as a lawyer in 1999, and was called to the Bar in August 2000. He has worked as a Crown Prosecutor since July 2002, and handles many of the serious and complex prosecutions within the Red Deer Judicial District.
We remember those that have fought for us, and those that have lost their lives.
