Brigadier-General K.E. OsmondPATRON View Bio2018 - presentBGen Keith Osmond grew up in the small town of Pasadena, NL, yet he is anything but small (in stature). Standing 6’4” by age 14, his height quickly became an advantage on the basketball court. From grade nine on he played center and was known for being a team player who could use his size to set a mean pick. Early in his life he was recruited for his hometown’s basketball team, the Falcons. The BGen’s passion for the game made it easy for him to want to play through his childhood and then onto the college level at Grenfell Campus at Memorial University of Newfoundland. BGen Osmond joined the Canadian Armed Forces, Royal Newfoundland Regiment in 1987 as an Army Reservist and after transferring to the Regular Force started to play basketball for the CAF. He played ball from 1993 to 2005 and then again with Recreational Leagues in Ottawa during his postings in the National Capital Region. In 2014, while studying at the The Eisenhower School for National Security and Resource Strategy in Washington, DC, he held the title of Co-Captain for their Men’s basketball team. Throughout his fulfilling career in the Logistics Branch, BGen Osmond was honoured to command at every level from Platoon to Formation. He has worked across all Army Divisions, the Canadian Army Headquarters, and the Vice Chief of Defence Staff Group as well as both a United Nations Mission Headquarters and a NATO Corps HQ. During that time he has attended more than ten CAF Regional Basketball Tournaments and two Nationals. Those experiences reinforced the CAF’s ethos of comradery, teamwork and esprit de corps with members of all ranks involved in the sport. He believes sports has contributed to his growth as a person, an officer and a leader. Col Osmond officially retired from Basketball in 2015. Today he enjoys participating in more leisurely sports and can be found launching golf balls into the woods, lifting weights, reading and enjoying time well spent with his family and attending his four children’s sporting activities. In 2017, BGen Osmond was appointment the Commander of 5th Canadian Division Support Group, Gagetown, and shortly thereafter was privileged to be selected as the Patron for the Women's basketball program. He takes his role as a CAF Patron very seriously and his responsibility to foster, promote and develop the sport is always near and dear to his heart.
