    CAF Beard policy-CANFORGEN 158/18

    The thing is...all of these troops that went and got a med chit; the med condition is still there. Their face didn't get better because of a CANFORGEN. So either their face heals miraculously and they get off their P-CAT which leads me to question the severity of the problem in the first place...

    "MP's or Provost - An Idea on Roles" and "Replace base MP with RCMP"

    IMO what we need to do better as a branch is take a look at what it is we do on a day to day basis. Policing, TASO, CP or whatever and do an honest assessment of our training IOT do that role. Does a TASO need a badge? I'd say no...so we train our PRes to do it, Port security - PRes, MPSS -...

    The Land Operations Temperate Boots (LOTB)

    This morning I received a phone call from clothing....boots in my size were available. Not expecting much I made the trek over and lo and behold LOTBs as far as the eye could see. I tried on the both versions and came away with the Terra (I don't like zippers). They're comfy but a bit on the...

    Transgender in the CF (merged)

    I think that if the individual in question has been diagnosed with gender identity disorder (GID) or gender dysphoria and are in the process of transitioning then yes they should be treated as their identified gender. Just seems like the right thing to do....to me.

    Civilian Police to Military Police

    After a PLAR is done and any applicible quals granted the most likely course of action would be for the member to attend blocks of a Res Ql 3 to pick up whatever PO's are outstanding. This is something we've done out here a few times

    Sgt Mike Lehman, CD

    Sergeant Michael LEHMAN, passed away after a sudden and valiant fight against Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease (CJD) which is a decidedly vicious ailment.  Sgt LEHMAN worked with 2 MP Regiment since July 2010, specifically with 33 Military Police Platoon, and has been a member of the Canadian Armed...

    Reserve MP vs Reg Force MP

    OP, I'd hold off until the latest FEC decision is made and we find out what the Branch wants us to do. And if you have specific 2 MP Regt questions feel free to drop me a message
