    Destroyer/Or Frigate

    They never asked me what class of ship I wanted, just the coast I prefer which didn't matter anyways because I knew I was going east. I'm very happy being on a 280; before next year I'll have a gulf tour under my belt.

    60 Failures out of 129 candidates failed PT test

    I'm not going lie; I saw this coming when they removed the express test from the recruiting process. Too many people showing up at basic in extremely poor physical condition. It's not Camp Snoopy; it's the military. Being physically fit is part of your job; regardless of trade, age, or gender...

    Eating Right, On a Budget

    Am I the only one who finds tuna to be ridiculously expensive out here in BC; I just think canned fish should be affordable. I'm also living in the shacks and find I'm not getting my moneys worth. If I lived off base I'd still spend about 3 to 400 on groceries but I'd eat what I want and when I...

    Navcomm course

    Course dates are never a sure thing. Like I said before in a previous thread; it all depends on how many nav comms are waiting in pat. As for reserve courses; I've seen 1s courses running with only 2 people.

    NEIP...what is your opinion?

    I found the forced pt to be completely useless. If someone doesn't want to workout then they wont. I'd see people duck out the gym (sometimes including me if I had already done course pt); or even worse you'd see people chatting it up or sitting in the hot tub for a couple hours. Yes the program...

    4 1/2 months since I've been out of neip and I don't miss a second of it.

    New Girl

    Well I'm not going to lie; you're going  to be surrounded by "kids", especialy in the reserves. The majority of untrained privates will be in the under 25 crowd. Sure there will be a couple older folks in your basic platoon but expect most of your wingers to be highschool and college students

    11 Sep 01 - 11 Sep 07 Six Long Years

    I was in math class, my 1st or 2nd week of highschool, when the principal announced on the intercom what had happened.

    Navcomm course

    Ofcourse I'm a rare example but I waited only 2 weeks to get loaded on my Nav Comm ql3s. But speaking for others I can say the wait isn't that long; not even close. Yes there is the odd person whom after training (ql3s plus netp) will have stayed about a year in Nelles block but it's usualy not...

    WIndsor recruit. Swearing in Time and Date?

    Klee by the looks of your profile you are or were in the reserves. If you're doing a component transfer you most likely will not be sworn in again; you'll just go to the recruiting centre and sign your contract

    No MS and Below cloth naval cap badges available?

    Nope they're all gone. Keep an eye on your head dress  as I know several people in Nelles that have had their berets swiped for the cap badge.
