Were you ever involved in any contacts with the Talistanis...

You make my head hurt at times..

Don't make up your own slang..  Just use Taliban, Al Qaeda, etc  you know the actual names of the groups an what everyone knows.

If you are trying to find out if Sigs get into TICs, than yes some have been, others haven't. All depends on where you end up going, your job, etc.

I lived down the street from them when I was younger.  They had no children but raised rabbits instead and never tipped well when it was time to pay for their newspaper.  I wonder what happened to them?  Perhaps they were a sleeper a cell.

All LCIS Techs serve in the C & E branch.  Some of them are attached to Artillery, or Armoured, or Infantry units to support those formations/units.  The artillery doesn't have its own 227 types. 

You need to read more and type less.

Ummmmm I don't think you should include yourself in the "we're" part.  Are you even a sworn in member of the CF?  'Cause here is the deal...I am a member of the CF, been around for awhile, never been to Afghanistan and I don't consider myself in part of the "we're" that are chasing bad guys and pulling triggers over there.

So I am wondering why you do.  But I can see you didn't take anyones STFU advice and can't post, so maybe you can think about that while you're on RLS.

When you say "we're fighting etc etc" it can seem like you see yourself as one of the troops over there right now, etc.

Anyways, you really need to read more, post less an think before you post.

OK thanks...Is it just the Taliban we're fighting or are there other factions as well like the Northern Alliance etc...And when do the Chinese enter the war..haha :)

Just an FYI the Northern Alliance fought the Taliban...


Chinese enter the war? What the ****

If you want to know who all the factions are there, research it. There are Afghan an foriegn fighters in Afghanistan fighting ISAF/ANSF... google it for more info.

I for one am quite happy when a member of the public takes ownership of the mission and uses the term "we are fighting".  For too long the public has looked at the CF as a man a part.  We go where there is political will and the Government tells us to; that bus is driven by the people of Canada.  The country is at war, not just the 3000 guys in green/blue/black in the ATO.  I would imagine of the 600 or so pointy end folks who take it squarely on the chin everyday that very few would mind knowing that there are also a large number of regular Canadians in the foxhole with them (figuratively speaking of course).

Yes, I support our troops and hopefully I can contribute as a member of the CF to the war effort eventually.

By the time you make it through the training system we will probably be out of this conflict.

Theres LCIS positions in Tac Hel Squadrons.


As for the UAV bit, no idea. I don't think theres any formed UAV units in Canada just within the Air Wing in TFK. I think the Artillery(AD) is responsible for the MUAV though.

I think I meant MUAV...umanned aerial vehicles....I read in an article in Afghanistan there were LCIS Techs on MUAV maintenance teams and some LCIS Techs posted to air force wings...would they be working with avionics techs and ATIS techs in anything that crosses over between the army and air force in terms of electronics...
