The Saskatchewan Dragoons
Spirit of initiative
The Saskatchewan Dragoons is a unit of 38 Canadian Brigade Group, which is part of the Canadian Forces Primary Reserve. Our task is to augment the Regular Force in meeting Canada's military commitments, both domestic and international. Our training closely follows that of the Regular Force, which the Reserves are called upon to assist increasingly often. The regiment is currently equipped with 16 Mercedes Benz G Wagon reconnaissance vehicles.
Our role is that of a reconnaissance squadron. The role of the armoured reconnaissance (recce) squadron is to obtain timely and accurate information which both satisfies the commander’s information requirements and is received quickly enough to be incorporated in the commander’s operational planning process. At the same time we deny such information to the enemy.In the advance we lead the main body of brigade while in the withdrawal; we maintain contact with the enemy, screening them, while the main body pulls back. Thus, we often speak of our role as “First In – Last Out”!
Join Our Unit
We train on Wednesday evenings, 7 - 10 pm. The Army Reserve is the part-time component of the Canadian Army. Most Army reservists work part-time for the Army and full-time at their civilian job. Others are full or part-time students. The Army Reserve has three main roles:
- Provide the framework for mobilization or expansion by using existing Reserve units framework should the nation ever need to respond to a large crisis or an emergency
- Connect with Canadians by strengthening the ties the Canadian Army Reserve has with local communities
- Augment the full-time Army by providing soldiers, units or specialists.
The Army Reserve is progressively more active than it has been in years with an increased operational role in the Canadian contribution towards the maintenance of peace and stability in the world.
