Col. Luis de Sousa has logged a lot of miles for the Canadian Armed Forces.

In 2011, he was deployed to Afghanistan as a staff mentor for the Afghan National Army Command and Staff College. He has also travelled to Pennsylvania for training at the United States Army War College and taken NATO courses in Germany.

But he couldn’t have done it without the support of his employer, he said.
