Well.... time has come. It's my time to embark into this this new journey of becoming a United States marines. Time really flew and I know this few months ain't going to be easy, but when you have God on your side, anything is possible, I thank everyone who has been on my side through this process and I can't wait to be a marine. Off to boot camp I go. I hope everyone stays safe and just enjoy life #KiloCompany #ThirdBattalion #Oorah

Here's a tradition that never gets old 🇺🇸 Even though people often give me an initial strange look in their face when I tell them I was a Drill Instructor because of my friendly personality, I can assure them that I proudly worked with some of the best Drill Instructors of our time. I know that my brothers of Kilo Company and I put forth the time, blood, sweat, and tears into training Good Marines. It was a great & miserable all at the same time, but I wouldn't change it for the world. So we wear our Battalion shirts proudly under our dress blues, signifying our common virtue and respect for our brothers in the trenches 🙏🏼 #ibleedblue

Roughly here the Third Battalion cef crossed canal du nord to take the fight to the Germans! Ultimately on this operation Lt Kerr would win his Victoria cross. #qor #qormuseum #royalregimentofcanada #thirdbattalion #cef #canadaatwar #firstworldwar #victoriacross #canaldunord #canadianexpeditionaryforce #canadianarmy

In this field Lieutenant Kerr won his Victoria Cross at the battle at canal du nord.

Enlisting in September 1914, Kerr became a lieutenant in the 3rd (Toronto) Battalion, Canadian Expeditionary Force, during the First World War. On 27 September 1918 at Bourlon Wood, France, 23-year-old Kerr performed an act of bravery for which he was awarded the Victoria Cross for his actions during the battle of the Canal du Nord.

Lieutenant Kerr acted with conspicuous bravery and leadership during operations, giving timely support by outflanking a machine-gun which was impeding the advance. Later, when the advance was again held up by a strong point, and being far in advance of his company, he rushed the strong point single-handed, capturing four machine-guns and 31 prisoners.
