xx CF 98 and questions

February 10, 2016, 23:10:12 by dandy1234
I fell recently at a WO's and Sgt's Mess and fractured my elbow.  I am now on a temp category and have started physio to try to get back to normal.  The fall was attributable to a top stair that was not level with the floor, causing my heel to hook and I fell.  The work necessary to fix the stairs has been in with Public Works to get fixed, before my fall.  My question is, because this is a DND facility, am I considered on duty (CF 98) and who should I be contacting to get the required work done on the stairs for safety reasons.

xx joing the reserves at 16-17?

Yesterday at 19:46:31 by jwhitten
I'm not sure if this should be in recruiting or not but I'm 15 about to be 16 and I have strong interest in joining the reserves and later on the army. Does anyone know if because of my age I would be ineligible for some of the training/courses. Also when would I be able to complete BMQ without missing a lot of school?

xx MP Response to fire - Split from First infantry regular force female LCol.

January 25, 2016, 23:19:11 by MedCorps
She was a VanDoo when she was promoted major in 2007.

She was a Major in R22eR in 2014 when she had a Courts Martial.

Interesting case.  Nice to see that the reprimand did not affect her career.

I have crossed paths with LCol Wellwood on a number of occasions over the past 15 years and she is a good person and will do a great job as a LCol. The RCIC is lucky to have her.

xx Documentaries based on Vehicle Technicians?

January 02, 2016, 21:13:25 by xshafted
Not sure if this is posted in the wrong section, so forgive me if it is.

I want to know if anyone knows of any Vehicle Technician related documentaries in the Canadian Forces? I've seen one called "Combat School" which was aired on the Discovery Channel, but that mostly shows Infantry. Any help finding something would be awesome. Thanks in advance

How are combat related trades like infantrymen, combat eng, armored, etc, trained to deal with wild animals when it comes to self-defense?
