    Caught up in the medical?

    I'm not a recruiter anymore, nor have I ever worked in the CFRC medical det, but I do know from painful experience that repeated shoulder dislocations make someone unfit for field service, so you don't meet the common enrollment medical standards.  Go see an orthopedic surgeon and get the thing...

    Milnet.ca Medic Q&A

    These have been asked and answered before, but since I'm procrastinating, I'll give you the answers again, even though this thread is for health related questions, not medical tng questions. Most Res medics are land element, so SQ is a must. The Res training is now a modular version of the Reg...

    Reservists in the civilian police??

    I've got a City of Calgary EMS employee with me here in KAF, and I have to agree that the City of Calgary as an employer is probably one of the most supportive employers I've run across.  His terms and conditions of leave for military service are far superior to mine from the Government of BC...

    Recruiting chain of command

    If you're a serving member, this may be something for you to pass up YOUR chain of command, versus calling up the CO of a CFRC.  While I'm sure the CO would like to know what's going on in his office, having some random reservist call him up isn't necessarily the "Army" way of doing things.

    Magnum Desert Boots

    Blackhorse, I'm wearing a pair of amazon 4 db's as I type. I've worn their duty line for a couple of years now, in both my jobs, and I love 'em.  I went with the Amazon 4 DB's because the magnum fit is perfect for my feet.  They've held up pretty well to daily wear for the past month or so in...

    CF "Captain Ed Smith" Rescues CIDA Intern in Cameroon

    What's really annoying here is that Canadian citizens ignore the advice provided by DFAIT and then expect DFAIT to bail them out when things go bad.  And, it's a High Commision in Camaroon, not an Embassy. The Camaroon country report as of June 2007 stated: 2. WARNINGS AND RECOMMENDATIONS...

    The Chuck Cadman Merged Thread

    "The stuff the army issues is useless" and "no non-issue kit over seas!"

    And to top that off there's an order here that no additional pouches will be added to the trial vests, either ::)

    The Integrated Soldier System Project (ISSP)

    Wiley X goggles are specifically banned, as they reportedly do not meet impact protection requirements.

    georgeharper: thinks Iraq = Afghanistan

    George, he, and you, are both absoloutly (sic) ignorant of the realities on the ground.  Why don't you get your ass over here and talk to an Afghan and see for yourself instead of sitting there reading a bunch of agenda-driven insurgent sympathizing websites? In reality Canada is here for a...

    PM: Announcement on Choppers, UAVs Coming

    Matt, not to get this off topic, but the "turntable" or whatever it's called has been removed from just about all the blackhawks, so they can only carry two or three at a time (which is 2 or 3 more then the CF can carry in A'Stan right now  ::))

    Are desert camo uniforms prohibited to be worn by soldiers not deployed?

    CadPat AR is to be returned within 90 days of return to Canada.  Some soldiers retain them for PR presentations etc, but that's on a case by case basis.

    MEC board election

    Despite the average MEC employee's opposition to all things military, they still offer tax-free service to deployed members, so they're not all-bad. I've been to a few of the MEC Board Meetings, as they're all held in BC by law, and they're a lot of people saying "well, I've been a member for...

    John Manley as UN Uber-Envoy in AFG?

    Appointing John Manley will also deny him to the LPC, something that might be a secondary objective of the current government, or a nice effect, anyway.

    TCCC Shoulder Bag aka The Med Murse

    The problem with this is the term "Murse" is already taken:  Man Nurse, not Man Purse.  We've got a couple in KAF right now!

    The 2008 Canadian Election- Merged Thread

    As well, with the Liberals holding the crime bill up in the Senate, which is now also a confidence issue, if that gets rejected before the budget it gives the Conservatives the ability to campaign on a "tough on crime" plank, too, which will play well in Toronto and other urban centers which...
