Which only goes to show that even the CDS is confused by some CAF notions: The RCN, CA and RCAF are NOT environments - they are CAF Commands. The environments are Sea, Land and Air. The tags inside my DEU says DEU Sea, not DEU Navy. Probably rare, but you could conceivably have a Log officer wearing (being assigned) an Air DEU and spend her whole career working in and at bases under the CA or RCN control, for instance.

And, BTW, once you decide that the environments are sea, land and air, that doesn't leave much room for another one on planet earth.  ;D

Cyber environment  ;D

Does the red fedora denote that the cyber operator is also Cyber SAR qualified ???

Policing....OGBD, as in policing the Interwebz.  SAR is orange. ;)

Yes!  And the wrist guards are a great example of the CAF taking the initiative and dealing with the injuries their Cyber Warriors will most definitely incur in the service of her Majesty! 

Carpel Tunnel Syndrome? NP!  You won't even need to go through VAC to get these!

An interesting choice in uniform colour and style. Not a bad idea at first but as the US Army is now returning to pinks and greens our special forces now are dressed like Americans. Guess we jumped the gun on this one.
If you are an old soldier you can be forgiven for muttering " Things aren't what they used to be." True, but then they never were.

So, the US is following our lead?
Everything happens for a reason.

Sometimes the reason is you're stupid and make bad decisions.

Like the USMC's cam pattern? ;)

At least the USMC credits us with helping develop MARPAT.

Philip II of Macedon to Spartans (346 BC):  "You are advised to submit without further delay, for if I bring my army into your land, I will destroy your farms, slay your people, and raze your city."
