This tour was followed by a short posting to Canadian Forces Base North Bay ON before he arrived at CFB Ottawa in 1995. Russell served next at CFB Trenton ON (1997– 02) before taking his release from the Canadian Forces as a Plumbing and Heating Technician. He transferred to the Supplementary Ready Reserve in 2004 and joined the Base Construction Engineers in CFB Petawawa ON for his second career as Plumbing and Heating Technician.

    Russell had four deployments during his military career. He was on United Nations peacekeeping duties in Cyprus in 1989 and served three times with the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force in Syria (1997-98, 2001 and 2003).
