    Save everybody in your unit from discomfort, and don't join.

    Ok, so you MUST bring a picture from what I'm reading (though I'd prefer not to have any pictures) and I don't have a single pic that is 5x7, only 4x6

But who knows, maybe this is some survivor thing where they're going to fly me onto a lone island for the first three days to test how well I can survive, hence my question about the toilet paper. lol, but for real.

    Packing for Basic [MERGED]

    Got BMQ July 25th. I've already got everything packed in a suitcase. They say toiletries for the first 3 days, I arrive on a Saturday. Do those toiletries include toilet paper? I've got soap, shampoo, mouthwash, toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, shaving supplies.. But do you have to bring @$$ wipe?

    Infantry Reserves DP1 [MERGED]

    Hey. After how long is an infantry soldier considered fully trained? On the CAF site "The starting salary for a fully-trained Infantry Soldier is $49,400 per year" So what exactly is fully trained? i've googled it multiple times, and searched this site, but I can't find anything. I'm thinking...

    Application Process Samples [2003 - 2018]

    Here we go. It's been a dream to join the army for years - started seriously considering it since I was 14. I now just turned 17 10 days ago, and will be graduating Grade 12 September 2015. Not interested in going into a few more years of school after graduating (College) or working a pointless...

    Why do army vets complain about being broke?

    Yea I gotcha. I don't expect to be rich, just enough to get a good start on life. Assuming I don't lose any limbs, my career choice is policing. I'm currently a co-op student at the local police station. I've always wanted to be in the Army, and I feel as if I'll regret it when I'm older if I...

    Why do army vets complain about being broke?

    Oh.. I never knew that. How much are rations/housing usually? I know you just said some places are most expensive.. but generally, what's to be expected? Just to say it again, for infantry - if that makes a difference. I'm in ontario.

    Why do army vets complain about being broke?

    Alright.. Don't throw me a bunch of hate for this, but I always hear people complaining about how the military - or at least army - leaves you broke. I don't understand how. I'm thinking of going infantry after I graduate high school next year in 2015. I figure since the housing is free (As far...
