I am honoured to rise in the House today to recognize Major Dr. Trevor Jain of Charlottetown.
Major Jain is one of five members of the Canadian army recently awarded the officer level of the Order of Military Merit , the second highest military honour awarded by our Governor General to recognize outstanding military service.
A surgeon with the Armed Forces, Major Jain serves in the 36th brigade of the army reserves for P.E.I. and was nominated by his fellow soldiers.
His most recent deployment was in Iraq where he served as a trauma team leader.
When he is not serving his country as a reservist, Major Dr. Jain is an emergency physician at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Charlottetown, the program director of the Bachelor of Science in paramedicine program at the University of Prince Edward Island and the medical director of the paramedicine program at Holland College.
Mr. Speaker, I ask the House to join me in congratulating Major Dr. Trevor Jain on his recent award and to thank him for his dedicated service to our Country.
