Life at the edge turns
into success story
Soldier’s journey with PTSD
comes to Greenwood September 24
Lieutenant-Colonel Chris
Linford’s road to health following a long experience with
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
is a personal and inspirational
story.
He recounts his experiences
in his book, Warrior Rising - A
Soldier’s Journey to PTSD
and Back. Linford deployed to
Rwanda in 1994 and became
quite ill almost 10 years later.
He went on to stay and work
within Canadian Forces Health
Services as a nurse and then
a health services operations
officer and commanded 1
Field Ambulance in Edmonton,
as well as the NATO Role 3
Hospital in Kandahar from
2009 to 2010. He became
very ill again. Traumas that
impacted him dramatically lead
him to what he describes as
the very edge of his personal
and professional competence.
All this significantly impacted
his family life, which further
eroded his health.
He was treated at CFB Esqui-
malt and has since become involved in peer counselling and
ongoing support to veterans
who need assistance. His ability to sustain his relationships
has vastly improved and his
connection with his family has
never been better. Over the past
two years, he has achieved the
best health he has experienced
in almost 20 years.
He and his wife, Kathryn,
jointly present their experience as a family of five dealing
with his PTSD over the past
19 years.
“I have discovered the power
and importance of being honest and frank with this injury,
and I now speak to others
who are suffering and have
not yet discovered what to do
about it.”
Linford will speak at the Annapolis Mess September 24, 2
p.m. to 4 p.m., presented by
the Greenwood Military Family
Resource Centre. The event is

Aux prises avec le trouble de stress posttraumatique : un bel exemple de courage
Greenwood accueille le 24 septembre le récit du soldat atteint du TSPT
L’histoire du lieutenantcolonel Chris Linford, qui se
remet d’un trouble de stress
post-traumatique, est une histoire personnelle et inspirante.
L’auteur raconte son expérience dans son livre « Warrior
Rising - A Soldier’s Journey
to PTSD and Back ». Déployé
au Rwanda en 1994, Linford
tombe malade environ dix
ans plus tard. Il travaille ensuite dans les Services de
santé des Forces canadiennes
comme infirmier, puis comme
officier des Opérations des
Services de santé, et dirige la
1re Ambulance de campagne,
basée à Edmonton, ainsi que
l’hôpital de rôle 3 de l’OTAN à
Kandahar, de 2009 à 2010. Il
est très malade à nouveau. Les
troubles dont il souffre l’amènent inexorablement à ce qu’il
décrit comme la limite extrême
de ses aptitudes personnelles
et professionnelles. Tout cela a
une incidence considérable sur
sa vie familiale, ce qui altère
encore davantage sa santé.
Il est traité à la BFC Esquimalt et participe depuis aux
programmes d’entraide par
les pairs et de soutien continu
aux anciens combattants ayant
besoin d’aide. Sa capacité à
maintenir ses relations s’est
considérablement améliorée et
ses liens avec sa famille liens
n’ont jamais été aussi étroits.
Au cours des deux dernières
années, il a atteint son meilleur
état de santé depuis près de
20 ans.
Sa femme, Kathryn, et lui
présentent ensemble leur
expérience en tant que famille
de cinq personnes aux prises
avec son TSPT au cours des
19 dernières années.

découvert le pouvoir et l’importance d’être honnête et
franc, et je parle maintenant

squadron both visitors flew
with 70 years before, during the
Second World War.
Murphy and Major Bernie
Thorne, commanding officer of
Maritime Proving and Evaluation
Unit, gave the men an opening
briefing on what today’s Royal
Canadian Air Force does out of
14 Wing Greenwood. They then
turned over 413’s hangar and airfield, where an Aurora, Hercules
and Cormorant were staffed for
inspection by Hardy and Ward.
A morning coffee break was also
open to the squadrons’ personnel to visit with the men.
“It is an honour to share our
story with you, and an honour
to have you here,” Murphy said.
Ward and Hardy are part of a
diminishing group of Typhoon
pilots, which has met several
times a year since 1992 to “tell
the same stories,” Ward says.
“We all also liked the same
kind of beer!”
There are about 23 members
of the group from across Canada:
three were supposed to make
the visit to 14 Wing, but one
withdrew due to his health.
“We decided that we’d go on a
tour of all the military museums
Harry Hardy, centre, and fellow Typhoon pilot Wally Ward, right, tour with Major General in Canada, and Greenwood’s
(retired) Ian Patrick at the Greenwood Aviation Museum.
Corporal G.Cormier, 14 Wing Imaging is the last one for us,” Hardy
said. “Next year, we’re going to
France for the 70th anniversary
of Dieppe, and that will be it.”
Hardy describes the Typhoon
as an airplane that did most of its
work for the army during the war.
“We were right on the army’s
tail, bombing and strafing. The

strips were ready for us in France
June 12, and we operated off
the beachhead from them. I
flew one for eight months from
D-Day, and, from there, it didn’t
take long.”
Ward added soldiers would
“’whistle for a Tiffie,’ and we’d
be there. It was a very powerful
plane, a flying tank, with two
1,000-pound bombs, four canons and eight rockets.
“The danger wasn’t with other
aircraft – it was the buggers on
the ground shooting up at us. We
lost a lot – my squadron, over
half didn’t make it out of Europe.”
Hardy joked later in the day
at the Greenwood Military Aviation Museum, as a copy of his
autobiography was presented to
Wing Heritage Officer Major Bob
Johnson, that it was “all about
how I won the war, fellows.”
Ward shared a story of how
he and another pilot, Johnny
Lippert, were asked to take two
Typhoons up after coming out of
maintenance.
“July 29, 1944 was a beautiful
day, we were up to 10,000 feet
and I noticed Johnny was lagging – he was normally tucked
right under my wing. He looked
slumped over in his seat, and
that was odd: flying straight
ahead, losing altitude. I flew over
and under him – not a mark on
the plane, and that was the last
time I saw Johnny Lippert.”
Years later, in Ottawa for his
60th wedding anniversary, Ward
visited the Canadian War Museum and looked up Lippert’s
name.
“There he was, ‘shot down
by enemy aircraft.’ I thought
it wasn’t possible, and I didn’t
know what to do.”
His own theory: Lippert’s
plane’s oxygen wasn’t connected
properly coming out of the shop,
and, as he descended, the plane
became a target for enemy fire,
giving rise to the story Lippert
was shot down.
“I’ll never know, but that’s my
theory.”
Harry Hardy, born in
Verden, Manitoba; joined the
Royal Canadian Air Force and
flew Tiger Moths, Cranes,
Lysanders, Bolingbrokes,
Hurricanes, Kittyhawks and
Harvards. Posted to England
in 1943, he flew Spitfires: in a
mid-air collision, he was left
with only his seat! He then
transitioned to Typhoons and
was posted to 440 Squadron, operating from Cruelly,
France. He flew during the
Battle of the Bulge, in which
eight Typhoons were shot
down. He was the only surviving pilot. Hardy’s aircraft was
“Pulverizer.” Hardy had 96
sorties and was awarded the
DFC and CD.

Wally Ward was flying P 40
Kittyhawks off Annette Island,
Alaska with 118 Squadron in
1943, when there was a fear
of Japanese subs attacking the
west coast of North America.
In 1944, Ward was sent to
England to join 440 Squadron,
which soon left for Normandy
B9 Cruelly airfield. Ward flew
during the D Day invasion. He
demobbed in 1945 as a flight
lieutenant.

William (Bill, Slim) Michael
Houser, CD, Colonel (retired),
RCAF: pilot, commanding officer 405 Squadron – RCAF
Station Greenwood, base
commander CFB Edmonton,
deputy chief of staff Operations Maritime Command,
husband, father, grandfather.
There was a time when
the Royal Canadian Air Force
was mighty, and a great bird
of prey stood guard over all
directions of land and sea
leading to Canada. The CP-107
Argus (giant with a hundred
eyes) was power personified.
Often flying low over Greenwood and Summerside, where
we lived in the 1960s, it helped
to feel the vibration hitting you
in your chest, while walking
to school, to understand that.
Through 20 years of long
range sovereignty patrols,
Ocean Safaris, Carib Ops,
search and rescue, Cuban
Missile Crisis and others, the
Argus guarded the enemy at
the gates.
Our dad, Bill Houser, was
one of its pilots.
If anyone regretted the end
of the Second World War,
it might have been Bill. He
wanted to fly Spitfires. Born
January 22, 1928, he fell in
love with flying at a young age.
He was raised in Woodstock,
Ontario, spaced by a failed
family attempt at grain farming in Saskatchewan during
the Great Depression. Back
on the family farm in Ontario,
Dad passed as an average student while gaining his pilot’s
licence, more or less at the
same time he learned to drive
in his early teens - all financed
by a bicycle delivery job with a
local store. As the war raged,
Bill dreamt of the RCAF, while
his father planned for him to
take on the family construction
business. The war ended while
Bill was still in high school.
Finally, in 1948, the first
class of RCAF pilots after the
war was recruited. After defying the odds of a rigorous and
draconian selection process,
he was in, at the ripe age of
19. His early career involved
a multitude of aircraft types:
Canso, P-51, B-25, Meteor,
T-33, Harvard as an instructor,
Hawker Hunter, Jet Provost.
Bill used say he could “fly the
crates they came in.”
While an instructor in RCAF
Trenton, he met the face of
RCAF recruiting posters for
women in the early 1950s,
Leading Air Woman Lorraine
King of Yarmouth, and they
married in 1954. Soon after,
Mum and Dad were posted to the U.K. at RAF Little
Rissington. Their two years
in England were highlighted
by Lorraine’s invitation to a
garden party with the Queen,
but she could not go, being
too pregnant with their first
son, Dwight.
Bill distinguished himself by
writing an evaluation that may
have contributed to preventing
the Jet Provost from being
bought by the RCAF, resulting
in the development of the Tutor jet trainer. He also wrote off
a Hawker Hunter after a brake
failure caused it to run out of
runway. It was a good thing
there were no ejection seats
in those days, as Bill was 6’7”.
Back in Canada in 1956,
Dad was instructing on Harvard and T-33 Silver Star in
RCAF Trenton. Second son
Derek (Mike) arrived early in
1958. The advent of the ejec-

deployed with 415 Squadron
(although it was just standing
up and barely operational) for
six weeks during the Cuban
Missile crisis, in the fall of
1962. Later, the entire 415
Squadron (8 Argus) would
overfly Greenwood from Summerside on Bill’s suggestion
as a demonstration of operational readiness.
Our first transition to the
“outside” came in 1963, when
Dad was sent to staff school
in Toronto. Then it was on to
Air Requirements in Ottawa.
Our family grew again in that
posting, when our cousin,
Charleen, came to live with
us. Then, back to Greenwood
in 1966, where Dad took com-

tion seat put an end to Bill’s
single seat jet career. He was
among the first to convert to
the four engine long range
patrol aircraft Argus, with 404
Squadron at RCAF Greenwood
in 1960. The Argus was also
destined for Summerside and
Comox as it was brought into
service. In the early ‘60s, the
Housers bounced from Greenwood to Summerside. Third
son Jeffrey came in 1962.
As the operations officer, Bill
mand of 405 Squadron. A year
earlier, an Argus had been lost
in the Caribbean with an entire
crew of someone’s fathers,
husbands or friends, and the
base was still reeling.
Bill’s command of 405
Squadron, and earlier days
with the Argus, seem today
like his glory days. The years
that followed involved staff
appointments as deputy chief
of staff operations Maritime
Command in Halifax (twice)
and base commander of CFB
Edmonton - plus a year on a
second language course in Ottawa. While base commander,
Dad believed his aspirations
for promotion to brigadier
general came to an end as a
result of controversy revolving
around the Martin Hartwell
Search and Rescue operation
in 1972. By 1978, faced with
a posting to Belgium he could
not accept, he retired with 30
years of service. He had a year
of Reserve service after this
but, by this time, the work
focus shifted to building hiss
and Lorraine’s own business.
Opportunity knocked when
a property in Black Point,
Nova Scotia, became available. From this, Puddle Bay
Antiques was born, a business Bill and Lorraine would
operate for the next 25 years.
During those years, dad built
houses for friends, buildings for himself, looked after
grandkids and dabbled in
homebuilt aircraft, producing
a radical amphibian design
(the Wooduck) he never had
a chance to build. The leading
edges of dementia started to
show in Lorraine about four
years ago, and Bill poured his
energy into her care. By 2012,
it was too much and Lorraine
went to long term care. Not
long after, dementia caught
up with Bill, and he joined
Lorraine in April 2013.
Bill Houser passed away in
his sleep September 4 in his
86th year, and after 59 years
of marriage - to the day. He
steadfastly would have refused any attempt at obituary
writing; this is not intended to
sound like a normal one. He
loved his family, country and
the Royal Canadian Air Force
and would likely have been
happy to have been mentioned
in the same company as the
tens of thousands of others
who came before him, were
with him and will come after
him - and felt the same. At an
appropriate time, an informal
gathering of family and friends
will observe the internment of
his remains at the Beechwood
Canadian National Military
Cemetery in Ottawa. Donations are encouraged to the
national Alzheimer’s Society.

Fun By The Numbers
Here’s How It Works: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid,
broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers
1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can
appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out
the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric
clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name,
the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!

Ride to remember
the Aurora | 14 Wing Greenwood, NS
September 16, 2013
Darren Williams,
2 CAV Fortress Europe
Over 100 bikers joined a ceremonial run from Digby to
Hebron, part of the annual Digby Wharf Rat Rally. Attention for the event surprised and moved many involved,
as people lined the route with flags, signs and vocal
support.
Submitted
With the Wharf Rat Rally in
full swing, the morning of August 31 started wet and rainy,
deterring many riders from
participating in the planned
ride to the Maple Groove Education Centre in Hebron to visit
the community Afghanistan
Memorial erected by Yarmouth
memorial club youth.
Still, 112 bikers showed up,
and the group departed Digby
at precisely 9:30 a.m., led by
an RCMP motorcycle, road
captain and ride coordinator
Darren “Willy” Williams, national Canadian Army Veterans
president Paul “Trapper” Cane,
members of the Canadian Army
Veterans, ride participants and
74th Crusaders members acting as the sweepers.
As soon as the group
reached Highway 101, the rain
stopped and the clouds started
to thin. The route extended to
exit 28, where riders followed
the French Shore Highway 1
route. Almost immediately,
riders were astounded to see
local residents lining the route,
waving Canadian flags and
Riders stand together after a successful run and service at the Afghanistan Memorial
in Hebron August 31.
Submitted
cheering. There was not likely
a dry eye among riders when
we passed a retirement home
which had all its residents out
as the convoy passed, or the
vet who had to be in his 90s
wearing his maroon beret,
waving a Canada flag in one
hand and saluting with the
other.
In Hebron, riders were
thrilled to see the memorial
club kids lining the drive into
the school holding Canadian
and Nova Scotia flags (each
Nova Scotia flag had the name
of one of the province’s 14
Afghan fallen embroidered
onto it). All were greeted by
a crowd made up of Silver
Cross families, MLAs, media
and local residents - well over
250 people in attendance. A
donation pail in front of the
monument raised close to
$500 for the memorial club
for its monument upkeep fund.
The dedication started almost to the moment the sun
actually broke out, and what
followed was a very moving
ceremony with singing of the
national anthem, speeches
from local MLAs, the memo-
rial club advisor, Joe Bishira;
CAV president Trapper and a
very moving speech by one of
the Silver Cross mothers. After
the speeches, Trapper gave out
some appreciation and dedication plaques to memorial club
representatives.
After the ceremony, riders
and guests were cut loose to
make their own way back to
Digby or to take in the sights
around the Yarmouth area,
where many of the local businesses were offering discounts
to riders. All in all, a very successful and emotional day.
Toastmasters ready to talk to newcomers
Edward Wedler,
Annapolis Valley
Toastmasters
Edie Murray, Christine Fernie and Edward Wedler hosted
the Annapolis Valley Toastmasters Club’s booth at this
year’s 14 Wing Greenwood
Wing Welcome in Greenwood
September 7. Wing Welcome
draws hundreds of new base
personnel and their families
to a fair that showcases clubs,
organizations and businesses
in the surrounding area.
The club handed out many
welcome packages to interested prospects, including a
Toastmaster magazine, the
club’s newsletter, a pamphlet
explaining Toastmasters, a
membership application and
a business-card sized personal
invitation to attend a meeting.
Members also had the chance
to discuss cross-club activities with others, including
the Greenwood Camera Club
about a joint meeting, where
both visual communication
and verbal communication
could be explored. They also
talked with an excited owner
of a local coffee shop about
hosting a regular soapboxstyle evening, where members of the community could
have their voice heard on any
topic of interest, whether it
be social, political, poetic,
oratorical or lyrical; entertaining, informative, motivational
or inspirational. An offer was
made to some groups to have
Toastmasters deliver speeches
of interest their members.
It is exhilarating when peo-
ple get excited about Toastmasters’ communication and
leadership programs to help
improve people public speaking skills. It is no accident
Toastmasters is “where leaders are made.” Annapolis
Valley Toastmasters meet
Tuesdays, 6:30 p.m. to 8
p.m., at the Birchall Training
Centre at 14 Wing Greenwood.
Guests and visitors are always
welcome to attend an evening
of fun and education. Visit
the club’s website at 8104. Club president Edie Murray explains Toastmasters.
