    Divining the right role, capabilities, structure, and Regimental System for Canada's Army Reserves

    If you have good ideas, they might not want you anways. 😁

    Divining the right role, capabilities, structure, and Regimental System for Canada's Army Reserves

    Yes, to an extent. Not for cap badges, thought. For 'current role/capability'...and that makes sense. I know I'm circling the same topic points again...so I'll say 'thanks for the discussion' at this point. :)

    Divining the right role, capabilities, structure, and Regimental System for Canada's Army Reserves

    This, I agree on. And...change has to start somewhere. 36/37 is a logical place to start (it was supposed to happen years ago, but never did...). 36 CBG HQ is in Halifax, 37 in Moncton. Do we need 2 Pres CBGs and their HQs for the actual amount of troops in both? Nope. PEIR, 8 CH, Hfx...

    Divining the right role, capabilities, structure, and Regimental System for Canada's Army Reserves

    I am sensing you don't know what a Bde Recce Sqn does/is supposed to do? Under your structure...anyone in PEI could join as a Gnr, Spr or Tpr? LOL ok. where do, and who do they train with on parade nights, wknd trg? I am sure PEI isn't going to have a Arty, Engr and Armd sub-units. ...

    Divining the right role, capabilities, structure, and Regimental System for Canada's Army Reserves

    People are genuinely proud of their units history; PEIR as an example has battle honours from the South African War (1900) to WWII. Mbr have served in UN mission like Cyprus, Yugo (including Medak Pocket), Afghanistan...so while not serving as a formed unit or sub-unit even, like many reserve...

    PEI? not interested in Armd Recce...I can still be a veh tech, or HRA at PEIR. They used to have wpns techs, medics. I can join Signals...as one of the RCCS trades they have, or support trades they have...or I can join the NavRes....there's PLENTY of options if someone isn't interested in...

    The (few TAPVs) roled as limited DFS? Sorry...I don't see ANY benefit to this. What would be the recce elements in this structure, then? I'm looking at your proposed establishment changes with a 'benefit for cost' view. I see great cost, little benefit. Easier solution; collapse 36 and 37...

    Divining the right role, capabilities, structure, and Regimental System for Canada's Army Reserves

    You're absolutely wrong in your 40 CRB org; it does matter. PEIR knows as much about dismounted inf ops and PLF knows about mounted recce ops. PEIR knows as much about Pioneer tasks as PLF knows about mounted screen ops or flank surv. Sure, PRes units have been changed to other functions...I...

    Divining the right role, capabilities, structure, and Regimental System for Canada's Army Reserves

    You gave TAPVs to units that have no links back to Armd (Mud) Recce...and made those Mud Recce Sqn's Inf Coys in your 40 CRB?

    Second senior military member removed from Canada's vaccine rollout campaign

    Copy, tks. Did it say it this was allegedly "back in yesteryear" or recent?

    And, you should be able to...if your NCOs are doing their job...which makes the WOs job easier...and so on. It's a system and I've seen it work in 2 different DEUs now for a while. :)

    A "Why" Dress Thread split from OCdt Speaks at Freedom Rally

    Here's the black and white of the subj, though....I'm all for changing/amending things like dress policy. I remember when squareback haircuts were first permitted...there was the 'well its all going to hell now!!!!' crowd. Now, we can buy our own boots, grow beards and partake in the funny...

    A "Why" Dress Thread split from OCdt Speaks at Freedom Rally

    Maybe. But...the QR & O doesn't give leaders that option (turn a blind eye) really, does it? For mbrs of your rank, you rely a lot on guys like me to do the policing and day-to-day stuff like this. In some CAF units, you'll find the mbr who can't dress right, and follow simple instructions...

    A "Why" Dress Thread split from OCdt Speaks at Freedom Rally

    Here's the bigger issue, though. There are ways we do things in the CAF; but the rules don't get enforced equally. A Maj with his hands in his pockets should be the same as a Pte doing it. If it's 'the way it is', follow the policy. Set a good example for your subs, enforce things as...
