Thanks to all of the 100+ attendees of the reunion during the 13 - 15 May. Many old relationships were renewed and contacts re-established. It was a great event that many think should be repeated - maybe in 5 years. The slide show that Ivan and Ken did certainly brought back some good memories of a great project and some interesting times in the North. We're sorry that more of you couldn't make it, but the commemorative coin (shown below) is still available. If you want one, get in touch with Ivan at email@example.com
The men and women in Canada and the U.S. who worked together to establish and to operate these defence capabilities can be justifiably proud of their accomplishments. The North Warning System continues to be a vital element for NORAD and contributes to Canada's sovereignty.
To observe this anniversary a NAADM/NWS Reunion event was held May 13 - 15, 2005 in Ottawa. Many of the pioneers, from both sides of the border, who helped to plan, design, build, deploy, and operate these systems from the earliest days attended. The participants included serving and retired members of the Canadian Forces and USAF, Government officials from both countries as well as representatives of the many Canadian and U.S. companies who played a significant role in the development and sustainment of these systems.
