    Personally knowing someone who died RIP Cushley

    I went to basic with Cushley. Also known as Cush or just Cushley on our course as well. When he died I couldn't believe it because I look over at my wall, and there he is in a few pictures I have up of me and the rest of the guys. It's really weird and a kind of reality check for most of us. Too...

    I don't know how to do the quote thing, I'm sure it's easy but anyway I'll try to interpret the beginning dream you had. I'm interested in dreams as well. But this is all opinion, I'm no doctor. :) "As a child my father wasn't around when I needed him, but during the time of my courtmartial (...

    Recruit school bypass

    I was concerned with this same question. If you do BMQ regular force, then it's 5 years. If I'm wrong I'm sorry, but I talked to my recruiter the other day and that's what the good  cpl said. If you did your BMQ in the reserves, I'm not sure but you have to have a certain amount of pte (b) time...

    Free Time on BMQ?

    I'll give it a shot... I graduated bmq on the 27th of Jan.. 77 echo.. YAR! heh..you won't know what that means unless you were there. heh... Anyway, I suppose the right answer to this is yes you get free time, you get what you 'need', basically. After you are confined to base for the first 3...

    Ah yes... Mr Change. I remember, and we will remember him throughout the rest of our career no doubt. Yes, for some reason the staff that do pt with you try to be harder than your instructors, but you will run into some instructors that make fun of the staff there, if you listen you'll hear them...

    There have been times where we have done alot of pushups let me tell ya. It DOES depend on your staff mainly. It depends what class you have too. I remember going into drill with our favourite mcpl, and he's a great great instructor, but if we make him mad...(when he gets mad the infantry comes...

    There is a guy in our platoon that is still here somehow, with 6 directives, about to get his 3rd PO failure (He's doing his weapon test right now and the rest of us are in the break area) and 1 attitude. There are some people with no common sense, or ability to just listen. Crap happens...

    You get directives if you get in crap. How it works for most people...is you get counsellings before you get directives, until week 4. Every time you get in crap after week 4 you get a directive. Before week 4 you get 2 counsellings. (warnings) before you get a directive...so if you got 2...

    ahh yes..sewing. After you get all your kit.. for me 3 days after I got here, we had to sew a 2 inch label with this ironing tape to our kit. There must have been at least 150+ pieces of kit to sew this label on. First iron it, don't cheat and just sew it on. Then label then sew it.. Jesus, our...

    Whats wrong with our army?

    Yeah, I agree with everything you've mentioned Tracker. Things do need a change, and the recruiting system does need to be sped right up for sure. I agree. But, that's not the way things are right now. Right now, everyone who is waiting for that call, or mad at how long the system takes or...
