    Why is the military at increased risk?

    Yes, The bacteria flourishes in warm moist places but the places are on the body not in gym rooms etc. It doesn't live on clothing etc. It does if you had it in the nares and you blew your nose...the tissue would be comtaminated or on the groins.......

    Why is the military at increased risk?

We were educated on this time and again and there was no mention on what...

    New PT Test Requirements...Thoughts?

    You better believe it. My son was one of those who didn't pass the shuttle run and had to take remedial training. He lost 10 inches. Graduated in the top five of his platoon. He is in some shape and he owes it all to the help and guidance of his instructors and of course his sheer determination...

    Question from a parent

    My two cents......Our son was in Sea Cadets for two-three years(forget now). He hated it! Quit. In about grade 10 he started playing with the idea of joining the Military. He is now 21 and graduating from basic Nov.30th and off to Esquimalt Dec.1st . You never can predict how things will turn...

    I hope you are right HorM. It would be nice to have him with us for this Xmas.By the way...would he have to pay up front for his flight home and be reimbursed? Or pay the first 800km and the CF pays the rest? Any input would help.

    What is the reasoning of being sent to B.C. now? To get settled in? Seems like an expense to me. Especially since the course doesnt start until January.I know of another lad who finishes his basic Dec 6th( I think) and he is off the whole month of December and then goes to B.C. in January.He is...

    Thank you for the info .....it helped. I know he will not be able to spend every Christmas with us as he has another life now. Its just that it is still new to us and we are adjusting.....adjusting very well I might add. He IS our only child. We do have our 11 year old nephew living with us now...

    He is being sent to Victoria for his NCI Ops trade. There are five going from his platoon in Borden. We live too far away( CapeBreton) for us to go to Victoria. We both also work full time.....no options there. Just have to keep our fingers crossed I guess and PRAY!
