CWO/Adjuc Eugene Adams, CD

    After 35+ years of loyal and dedicated service to the Canadian Forces and the Engineer Branch, CWO Eugene “Coco” Adams CD, will retire from the military on 18 Jul 10.

    CWO Adams enrolled in the Canadian Forces on 12 May 75 as a Field Engineer. In 1984 he re-mustered to Construction Technician, and upon promotion to WO in 1997 he was transferred to the CE Superintendent Occupation. Then in 2005, he attained his present rank of CWO and he will continue as the SCWO of 4 Construction Engineering Squadron until his retirement.
