So it's considered tradition to have this tattoo on your right hand for combat engineers? That's pretty cool. But I thought detonations are only taught in Reg Force units now? Is there any demolition covered at all in Reserve units?

It would take away Combat Engineers meat from the potatoes if they didn't cover demolitions in the Pres.

My mistake. I mixed up 'blowing things up' with EOD training, which is no longer offered as per the 'EOD' thread in this sub-forum.

And that is about to change again as CFSME-RETS appears to be offering the CMD-BASIC next year as a PRes only serial

The 'pana" is a play on the Greek 'pan' meaning 'all' or 'encompassing' - not quite but similar to UBIQUE
some think I just misspelled "para" :-)
