…Bravo Zulu!


Bravo Zulu to Master Seaman Donald Wilson, chosen as the Naval Reserve Sailor of the Year.

MS Wilson is the Deck Department Training Petty Officer at HMCS Brunswicker in Saint John, NB, and was awarded this honour for his exemplary professionalism, dedication, leadership, and overwhelming concern for his fellow sailors – qualities that have set him apart from his peers and subordinates. Undeniably a role model for all members within the Naval Reserve, MS Wilson joined in 2001 at the age of 45 and currently holds the record as Brunswicker’s oldest recruit.
