Cadet Proznick is a member of 2271 Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps at Wadena.
The Lieutenant-General J. E. Vance Award is presented to the cadet on each of the four instructor courses who has demonstrated the qualities of a leader and is a role model for other cadets.
Cadet Proznick was enrolled in the six-week drill and ceremonial course. The cadets enrolled in the course not only perfected their individual drill, they also learned to teach younger cadets at their home corps. During the summer they formed quarter guards to welcome dignitaries, and provided flag parties for all parades. They also formed the guard and flag party for the first annual Okanagan Military Tattoo.
For the final parade and sunset ceremony, the cadets in the drill and ceremonial course formed the guard and fired the feu de joie, a rapid sequence of blank rounds.
After the final parade, the cadets made their way to their homes in Western Canada.
