Prince Rupert’s own Tanner Logan succeeding in the military

“He had always wanted to get into the military field, it was his high school dream to join the army because my dad was in the army. He joined the same regiment my dad was in, the infantry,” said his mother, Marg Logan, who currently still lives in Prince Rupert.

Prince Rupert’s own Tanner Logan has been extremely successful in obtaining his life-long dream of joining the army, serving for the last eight years as a member of infantry previously, and more recently as a military police officer.

“He had always wanted to get into the military field, it was his high school dream to join the army because my dad was in the army. He joined the same regiment my dad was in,  the infantry,” said his mother, Marg Logan, who currently still lives in Prince Rupert.

Logan graduated from Charles Hays Secondary School in 2002, and quickly joined the army as a member of the infantry. Since joining, Logan has served two tours of duty in Afghanistan, an undoubtedly impressive accomplishment.

More recently, Logan left the infantry branch of the Canadian Armed Forces, enrolling into Military Police Academy at the Canadian Forces Base Borden, which is the historic birthplace of the Royal Canadian Air Force that is now used as a training base for several elements of the Canadian Forces. During his six months of training at Borden, Logan did extremely well graduating with top honours, receiving the best marksmen award and top candidate award.

Logan is currently posted in Ottawa as a military police officer, and unfortunately does not get to travel back home to Prince Rupert very often, and will be coming home even more infrequently now.
