    PT workouts: What to wear

    If your going to St. Jean you all of our platoon will wear the same thing.  If your starting in January you will be in long pt (sweatsuit) and probably be wearing gloves and toque.  We were always told what to wear to pt by our staff.  When you are swimming you will wear the issued swimsuits.

    I'm not sure about that one, I got my gerber when I got to wainwright and I havent even started my QL3 yet.  Actually pretty much everyone here  has a gerber issued to them.

    Where is the closest bank to the Garrison?

    It's also a lot easier to get 1 person to pay the bill because you get re-imbursed for it anyways, so if buddy pays for 30 and you pay for the rest it makes it a little more complicated.

    What not to do - No excuse BMQ tips [Merged]

    No, they can't touch you but they definately can and will swear.  It's the military for chrissakes not the girl guides...it would be pretty sad if they weren't allowed to swear.

    What's in store? Reservist life between enrollment & BMQ in your Unit.

    St. Jean BMQ - Inspection photos

    Don't wear jeans.  When I went to St. Jean I was told by my CFRC to go in a suit and tie.  Bring a couple civvie pairs of pants and shirts because you wont get your kit until midway into your first week so youll be  in civvies for the first few days.  Don't bring your car to the base, even...

    St. Jean BMQ - Inspection photos

    If you are going to bring something personal make sure it fits in the box or it will have to go into civvie lockup, and access to it is sporadic at best. For the first 4 weeks yes, you are in uniform 24/7.  After that you may be permitted to wear civvies after 6:30 and all day weekends. Like I...

    St. Jean BMQ - Inspection photos

    I agree with KID, stick with a disposable one.  Thats what most of the guys on my platoon brought with them.  There is also the possibility of the digital camera growing legs.

    He's in R700-you can tell by looking at the barrack box.  Why does it matter where he is or where you were? Everything is the same regardless of what floor you were on.

    I was in pretty much the same situation as you, if you dont report the injury to your RC and it becomes a problem once you get to the CFLRS and the doctors there figure out it wasnt caused by your military service and it was a pre-existing injury that wasnt reported to the medical staff, you can...

    No, basic is 11 weeks.   The only exception to that are two test platoons that are on a 13 week course that started a few weeks ago.
