Gladney has supported and championed the development of our province’s youth for sixty-four years, through his various leadership roles in the Air Cadet Program. As he took the role of Commanding Officer of 514 Kinsmen Air Cadet Squadron, his commitment of time, energy and resources was beyond what was expected. After his retirement from the Canadian Forces, Gladney continued to offer his expertise as a member of the Air Cadet League of Canada. He served several executive positions including the Provincial Chairman and National President of the Air Cadet League of Canada, and is still an active member.
