    Plumb Lines for Dressing, Alignment

    The Mark 1 Eyeball and the traditional pace stick always seemed to work for any SM that I've had or parade I've watched.  I'm pretty sure there is an actual drill movement for doing this too.

    SISIP LTD 2002 - 2018

    There are many ways to hide income from SISIP and others tracking your income...Some legal...others uh not so much...The easiest way to ask if your income will be deducted is to just ask.  I know it's almost impossible for those of us on ELB/SISIP to get ahead but losing everything because you...

    LAV 6.0

    Med Corps: That is perhaps what is on paper...however in practice both on domestic OPS AND in Afg HSS deployed 1 Coy Medic and 3 Juniors to the Infantry also in Afg each OMLT/POMLT got one too.  Limiting the Inf Coy to two medics (a dismount and a mounted) and putting both those eggs into one...

    LAV 6.0

    Infantry, Infantry Infantry... Why is that everyone wants to talk about how many INFANTRY soldiers we can cram into a LAV or whatever.  What about the attachments to said Section/platoon?  IF we cram 6 Infantry Soldiers into the LAV and have to be Hatches down (that's a little cosy in full...

    Geese, Could that reply be anymore open ended? :facepalm: Anyone know a good witch doctor who could figure this out? :brickwall: I bet if you asked VAC for an official answer on what color was the sky you couldn't get one.  oi Teager, I wouldn't be surprised if I was fed bad intel on this...

    VAC Client Card - 'A' client vs 'A&B' client

    This is a very good post, and an excellent question. Like most things VAC related.  Only God MIGHT know the  true answer. 6/15 are A/B for me the rest are B I was told that if you had an SDA you got straight B's indicating that VAC would cover you for any remaining amount after your...

    PTSD extends beyond military vets, mental health conference told

    medicineman, Well said, and you are completely correct of course.  You cannot lump the Sheep Dogs with the sheep (so to speak) and I should have mentioned that.  And I have to agree with Colin P as well, the role of our Religious institutions needs to be recognized as well and perhaps used more...

    PTSD extends beyond military vets, mental health conference told

    Well, after spending the day reading this threading and not having the 5 min needed to form a proper response here I am at 10 pm, and here it comes from the horses mouth.  Both from the perspective of someone who battles with PTSD and who worked within the Military Health system as a medic, and...

    Medical Release ( merged )

    How's this for answer from someone who had 6.5 yrs as a medic before being Medically released: First Off, the medical staff do not decide to release anybody, ever.  This is decided by an "impartial" board in Ottawa.  Secondly if there was a preexisting injury as long as it was FULLY disclosed...

    From Paramedic to Infantryman

    Badner, The Canadian Forces Health Services Junior NCM's are split into two elements regardless of component: Med Techs (PCP Qualified)  and Med Assistants (Not PCP Qualified) Trust me there is a big difference, Med A's are, in theory, supposed to replace Med Techs in the rear area so that...

    Enfield rifle drill question from old CAMT 2-2

    Try some of the older Army Cadet Corps that are affiliated with Infantry Batalions.  Army Cadets are still doing drill with the Enfield (I believe) and should have a copy of the drill manual.  I know mine did, way too many moons ago, the damn thing was a 6" thick binder if I reminder correct...

    Veteran Tells Harper Don't Bother Coming to Remembrance Day and Fire Fantino.

    Like I said on Facebook when I saw the article. $5b in more funding.  $4.55b goes to cover the bureaucratic overhead, and the thousands of veterans get to split the rest for payouts, and our other benefits. Typical of this government.
