    Cadet number?

    Forgive me if this has already been asked, but I was just wondering if cadets have some sort of service number or something. If so, how would I go about finding it? I ask because I was in army cadets and am putting it on my application. Also, does cadets in any way reduce the waiting time or...

    Infantry Hearing Change

    I know there are similar threads on this forum but this one is a little different. I went into the recruiting center 6 months ago, knowing my hearing level was an H3 (almost H2, I recently had another surgery that may have boosted me up to that level). I was suprised when the recruiter showed...

    Open Question for Advice on Stalking and Stalkers

    As far as self defense classes go, Krav Maga is where it's at. It's the official defense system of the Isreali army. My instructor always says 'Learn it today, use it tonight'.

    Civillian Friends

    Thanks for the replies. If anything, I wish to break ties with most of the people I know in Vancouver. It's just kind of weird that I get such an overwhelmingly negative response when I reveal my career choice to people I know. It doesn't really bother me though, I just do my thing.

    Military sterotypes?

    Military sterotypes?

      YES. Anytime I reveal my career ambitions to someone of 'poise and culture' I get this weird look as they sip their wine. "So you're gonna go to AfghaniSTAUN or something" Is the most common response. (teachers and such. I'm a seventeen y/o little punk from eastvan)

    Military sterotypes?

    Thanks for all of you replies. From reading these posts it's odvious the sterotypes have been blown out of proportion.  I geuss it's human nature to hate/fear what they don't understand. I'd much rather have a meaningful job than be dragged down by everyone else's expectations. Vancouverites...

    Military sterotypes?

    Hi! first time post here (hope this is in the right category). So, a couple months ago I had revealed to my mother and step dad that I had plans to work in the army, more specifically the infantry(I'm 17 now). This is something I had always seen myself doing, ever since I was little. Their...
