Event description

Description

Jurgen Manfred Willie (Joe) Schulz served 30 years in the Canadian Army with the Princess Patricia Canadian Light Infantry (PPCLI). During the Cold War, he participated in three peacekeeping missions, and trained for different types of warfare including combatting terrorists.

He was born in East Prussia in 1943 in the middle of World War II. As a child, his family was evacuated from East Prussia to evade advancing Russian soldiers. Later, his family was accepted into this country through Canada’s Refugee program in 1953. For a variety of reasons over the following years, school was not my priority and he was asked to leave the school in grade 7.

Joe shares with us that "I’m not political correct. I prefer the term brutally honest or that 'I refuse to bow down to the enforcers of thought and speech control'.

I have a loving wife Shaaron and we had two children together. We are still happily married (after 50+ years) and have 5 granddaughters. Shaaron and I moved 17 times with our two children during my time in the army.

My hobbies include walking and volunteering with Calgary Public Schools, the Military Museums in Calgary and my church. My most important hobby is being a grandfather and believe me those girls are a full time job.
