    Former Canadian Soldier Wants to be a Reservist despite PTSD

    My view - He has a pre-existing condition that has the potential to re-emerge given the right circumstances.  What if someone with Type 2 diabetes, who required no medication because they could control it through diet and exercise, wanted to apply?  We would say the same thing.  This...

    Hope for Evan: N.S. dad seeks help to bring home son from IWK

    I saw this on a friend's Facebook feed and felt it should be passed along. Goes to show how a person's life can change in an instant.  I thought maybe people here could help, especially as this is a CAF family, either through donations or just spreading the word.  In the last 12 hours, the...

    MFRC Daycare

    Just wondering if anyone is having the same issues at other bases.  The daycare on our base is not accepting new babies/children even though they have more than 20 spots available.  The staff are being very vague about why they have not given those spots out although I have been assured that...

    Wing Commander Bob Middlemiss

    I'm surprised it hasn't been posted yet. For those who knew him, we will remember his great smile, his sense of humour, his stories about his career as a pilot and officer, his love of single malt and the ladies!  ;D One of the few Honourary Colonels that were given the right to hold the...

    "Banned" but not?

    Seems if I try to log in on my phone I'm banned.  But not on my laptop using the same WiFi. Considering my late nights and frequent use of my cell phone I was getting a little anxious there.  What gives?

    Gift ideas for XCR

    So, hubby picked up a used XCR-L not long ago and I am looking for ideas on accessories for him for Christmas. Figured I'd hit up the troop here before going shopping so I can just go in, get what I want, and leave. It's his first firearm so I'll be putting together a cleaning/maintenance kit...
