xx 2 RCR/Gagetown life

March 31, 2017, 01:15:17 by Nate7475
I just accepted a CT to 2 RCR from Pres and have never worked with 2RCR/been to gagetown. I have been on a few Reg force exercises with 1 RCR and have a basic understanding of the life/culture there such as stay away from Dukes coy like the plague. What can I look forward to and what can I dread about my new life in 2 RCR? How does living in Gagetown compare to other bases?

Thanks

Armyca-Ico Advice needed regarding Vehicle Tech (Reserved) vs Medical Assistant (Reserved

February 20, 2017, 01:54:17 by kod006
Good day, everyone,

I am trying to make decision and decide whether I want to be a Vehicle Tech or Medical Assistant in Reserved. By the way, I have a V4 vision. Can any experienced members give me advice about that?

1. As a reserve which of these two occupations will give me opportunity to travel (either within Canada or other countries) and explore?

2. As a reserve, which of these two occupations will give me opportunity to work on combat skills or roll out with combat units on the field?

and

3. If I ever decide to leave the Force one day and want to travel and work aboard, which of these two occupations will help me as a skilled worker?

Thank You!

xx Pride to be in the forces and everybody is leaving

November 09, 2016, 14:07:25 by JF P
Hi everyone

I have been in the airforce for 8 years .its is now my second posting and still the same .no one like to be in the forces and everybody is trying to get out .

I like the canadian forces , the best time i had was on tasking or exercise in wainwright.it seems like everyone i met in wainwright ( infantry or armoured ) loved there job and bever said anything about it being bullshit and couldnt wait to get out .im a firefighter so it could be that airforce love to complain but everubody is looking for civilian job .

So after that long paragraphe of not saying anything i was wondering if there is more pride in the army , more people liking there job and less complaining ( i dont mean complaining about the shitty weather ,the rain or the lack of sleep ) i mean complaining about serving there country or the forces in general .it seems like it was better before people are saying but if i was looking to remaster ...is the army a better fit .

Thanks
