Chief Warrant Officer (CWO) Colbert was born on May 30, 1966 in Sainte-Foy in the province of
Quebec. He joined the Canadian Armed Forces on March 6, 1984 as an artilleryman. He was among the
first gunners to serve with Romeo Battery of 5 Canadian Light Artillery Regiment. In 1986, he chose to
change trades and joined the infantry and was first assigned to 1 Commando, Canadian Airborne Regiment.
He deployed with the Regiment to Cyprus from September 1986 to March 1987 as an infantryman. On
his return home, CWO Colbert took advantage of every opportunity to specialize as a parachutist. While
assigned, he completed his jumpmaster and parachute instructor training. He was promoted to Master
Corporal in May 1989 and became Machine-gun Section Commander. After five busy years, he was
transferred to the Canadian Airborne Centre in Edmonton, Alberta, in July 1991.
He was promoted to Sergeant in December 1992. CWO Colbert continued to build his parachuting
experience and became a freefall instructor. As well as teaching the basic courses, he devoted a great deal
of his time to teaching freefall and took part several times in demonstrations with the Sky Hawks
demonstration team. He was transferred to 3 Battalion, Royal 22 Regiment in 1996 as Section Commander
with the Parachute Company.
He was deployed with the Battalion to Haïti in 1997 on OP STABLE. During this deployment, he was part
of the team protecting the Haïtian president as Commander of the counter-ambush section. His return home
was of short duration. In 1999, he deployed under tough conditions on OP TOUCAN, in East Timor, as
second in charge of an infantry platoon. In 2001, he deployed to Bosnia as operations Warrant Officer with
the Canadian contingent. In 2004, he deployed to Kabul. He was promoted to Master Warrant Officer during
this deployment and became Sergeant Major of the Parachute Company on his return home. CWO Colbert

shoulders with over 650 SM’s from more than 40 different countries. On completion of his training, he was
