Procto, George

George Procto served in Canada’s military in the years after World War Two, the “Golden Age” of peacekeeping and diplomacy. George hails from rural New Brunswick, and as he recalls, he was anxious to leave the farm and school. The military represented a different life, so he enlisted and began his travels across Canada, from Quebec to British Columbia to Quebec, and back to New Brunswick. George served as a crew chief, manning the radar stations and air installations across the country. He also did an overseas stint in Germany. George retired and ended up in Deseronto, Ontario, where he was interviewed courtesy of the Legion by Scott Masters in July 2018.
