First Pinoy appointed as commanding officer to Royal Regiment of Canada

Last Sunday, Lieutenant Colonel Joseph Nonato became the first Filipino ever appointed as commanding officer to the Royal Regiment of Canada — one of the nation’s oldest and largest army reserves.

On Sunday, Nonato assumed the role during the change of command parade at the Fort York Armoury in Toronto, Ontario.

44-year-old Nonato from Brampton, Ontario is the child of Filipino immigrants, and has served missions in Afghanistan and South Sudan.
