clip Canada Day colour scheme?

July 01, 2015, 02:05:42 by MCG
Lots of black and red.  I assume this is a Canada Day theme, but it looks more like crimson apocalypse.  I cannot even see the underline to warn of my spelling mistakes.

xx Cant go away for my DP1 this summer - within good reason.

June 26, 2015, 00:50:24 by bulletz
I'll try to keep this as short as possible, before I joined the Army Reserves I attended a police academy, its been my goal since I was a child to be a police officer, I enjoy the military for the most part, but I always said I would put policing first. I was supposed to go on my infantry DP1 which starts in about a week, but today I received an email that Edmonton police services want to me to come in for the final part of the hiring in Edmonton July 20th, meaning I have to choose between doing my reserve force DP1 or a potential career i've always wanted. I'm choosing to take the risk and go to Edmonton.

My question is, when I call and explain tomorrow why I cant go a week before course can they potentially kick me out? I haven't signed a class b contract or anything. I know its a shitty thing to do but I just found this out yesterday. I enjoy the military and would still like to stay in it, I just can't go away this summer.

Like I said, I haven't signed a contract yet. Most that happened is they put an advance in my bank account which I didn't need nor ask for, I'm just going to return the money by money order.

xx Life of an EME officer

May 05, 2015, 00:38:18 by AndrewEME
Hi my name is Andrew, and I am an EME DEO (OCdt). I am departing to Quebec in a few weeks to receive basic training in June. I was wondering if any current/retired EME officers could describe to me how an average day of an EME OFFICER is like. One burning question: what happens after dp1 in New Brunswick? Do we get to choose where we get to work, or do we fly/ship out to wherever we are needed?

xx How many soldiers in the army are combat arms?

April 27, 2015, 01:25:03 by Blake Castelein
The most recent statistic I can find online for the size of the army is 21,600 (active), but when I counted up the size of all the infantry, armoured, artillery, engineer, and service support battalions/regiments using usual size definitions (ie: 600 in a battalion) the number I came up with was around 11,000. So does that mean that around half the army is combat focused and the rest are cooks, intelligence, mechanics, etc?

Apologies in advance if I've answered my own question, or is this has been answered before.

To fight and conquer in all your battles is not supreme excellence; supreme excellence consists in breaking the enemy's resistance without fighting.
