Minister Baron said, “It’s extremely encouraging to see such a passion for service and volunteerism from the men and women in our community. And I wish to applaud Lt. Col. Curley, his predecessors and the entire team at the RBR for their commitment and dedication to ensuring the success of this process.”

The National Security Minister continued, “The 56 recruits who have completed two grueling weeks of training have demonstrated true courage and determination and they deserve our congratulations. I’ve had the opportunity to see firsthand both the work and training that the RBR do. I’ve travelled with them for their training exercises overseas. And I’ve worked alongside them in the Emergency Measures Organisation during times of critical national events such as Hurricane Nicole.

“Without question, Hurricane Nicole was an incredibly tense and uncertain time for our Island. But I can confidently say that Bermuda was incredibly well served by the RBR.

“Professionalism, integrity and compassion are what they exemplified during this worrisome time for our country, and the Royal Bermuda Regiment continues to be a great source of pride for Bermuda.

“And it’s into these ranks that our newest recruits will join – an organization that is prepared and ready, and displays in times of adversity unparalleled resilience, discipline and determination.

“So to our newest recruits – I’m certain that these past two weeks have been an unforgettable experience for you. The Ministry of National Security salutes your service and will continue to support you as you selfelssly serve Bermuda.”
