    New skill badges recognize unique naval operations qualifications

    Did the RCN switch to metal skill badges for all of their skill badges on DEU tunics? I thought I saw a couple of pictures with sailors with metal diver badges on their tunics. If so, why the change? Are the other services going to follow suit?

    Ottawa mulls role in Afghanistan past 2011

    That douche has earned the right to speak on Afghanistan without being personally attacked by some internet tough guy.  I would put money on you not having the courage to call him a douche to his face.

    Tactical Helicopter Observer Qualification Badge

    Not a day of service as a reg force soldier. There were some and he did to it - I'll give him that much. Those are the ones he wears (picture below) and he didn't have them on his uniform until he returned from Bosnia.  He says outright that he was awarded them after being qualified as a Msn...

    Tactical Helicopter Observer Qualification Badge

    I'm trying to find some official regulations or instructions regarding this, but I'm not having much luck.  I 'm pretty sure I'm on track, but I'd like to be sure.  It's one of those cases that generally angers most members of any military I'd reckon - that insecure poser that figures he'll...

    British soldiers return to wearing the Tommy helmet as Army unveils new equipmen

    It's too bad we can't push ahead at the same pace in regards to replacing some of our equipment: tacvest, design of cbt clothing, boots, wpns sight.......  Good on them for going with a commercial boot and giving the soldiers a choice of two designs, Meindl or Lowa.

    Joining CSOR early

    In 1PPCLI we sent off about six guys from my company - all new privates and some with as few as 2 or 3 months in the bn.  They applied right after the CSOR info brief and were literally on course a few weeks later after completing the necessary testing in Edmonton.

    Uniforms at RMC

    I have to say that the US Army shirts are pretty much as ugly as ours.  They are getting rid of them though, to switch to a grey shirt as part of their blue (the traditional colour of the US Army) ASU.  As mentioned in a Uniform thread, I would like to see the Army adopt a Khaki service dress. ...

    Uniforms at RMC

    That shirt is horrible.  Besides the bad cut and cheap material is that nasty colour.  We (the Army) need a much sharper uniform.

    The Forgotten Tours: Op Halo/Op Sculpture: After almost 10 years -- still no medal or recognition

    On Op Archer Roto 1, members of TF Orion were even closer that for time towards the GCS (ISAF), but nobody in the BG got it.  We were all awarded the SWASM for our time on OEF.  You think an exception might have been made for the BG that set the conditions for the transition from OEF to ISAF. ...

    Soldiers serving outside the wire are asking for more money

    Before some clerk jumps all over me, there is a Level 0 Hardship Allowance, so technically there are 7 levels (0 to 6).
