Gen. Walter Natynczyk Discusses Life Beyond Politics
Natynczyk started in the Cadets before joining the Canadian Forces. He advanced quickly through the ranks earning the respect of his soldiers who dubbed him Uncle Walt during his time in Petawawa. During a European post, he met Leslie, a school teacher hired by the Department of National Defence to teach the families of soldiers. They would eventually marry and today have three grown children who of their own accord also chose to pursue military careers.
