    The Case for AEW&C Aircraft

    Major air powers in the world - including the naval aviation of certain navies - operate Airborne Early Warning and Control (AEW&C) aircraft. Notably absent from those air powers is the Royal Canadian Air Force. All G7 countries except Canada; China, Russia, Brazil, India, Australia, even...

    Proper Use of Post-Nominals

    Ugh, it happens again. The CO of my child's cadet corps just received his CD. Previously he did not put any post-nominal on his signature, but now with his CD his signature becomes: Lt(N) Joe Public, CD, P.Eng. Commanding Officer, RCSCC Enterprise Department of National Defence / Government of...

    Defending Canadian Arctic Sovereignty

    While I understand what you wrote, but pay with what? Are we ready for tax increase or cuts to other government services or cuts to social benefits?

    Wearing Uniform in Public (merged)

    Hello, I have another case. My wife works in a company that sells stuff. Not for public retails but for contractors. Her boss the Location Manager, is apparently a CIC Officer. I believe he is the CO or XO of his unit. The thing is, during the day of the week where he has cadets in the evening...

    Army returns to dark blue or khaki berets for Foot Guards and technical corps

    As well, I thought the readopting of the curl was the correct decision? Of the well-known maritime forces in the world that were using sleeve stripes as ranks, virtually all of them used either a variation of the curl or a device / insignia / star on or above the stripes. Only the then Maritime...

    Army returns to dark blue or khaki berets for Foot Guards and technical corps

    Not that I am questioning you personally but can one not argue that the blue beret is a specialty for ARTY, RCEME, RCCS and INT? It just happens that all but INT are Army-specific trades. It would be funny if Navy and Air Force retaliate by issuing different color berets for their own INT.

    Army returns to dark blue or khaki berets for Foot Guards and technical corps

    Interesting, considering that Navy and Air Force MP and CANSOFCOM wear Scarlet and Tan, respectively.

    The Dress Instructions say: With that, can a Reservist not go to a photo studio to have her photograph in uniform taken for personal use?

    Questions about joining the Reserves

    Hello, I have a son that will reach 16 in 6 months time. He has been wanting to join the Reserve while continuing high school. He has his sight on two purple trades. Now, as of now those trades are offered by two different Reserve units in our city, one Navy and one Army. My question is, is...

    Proper Use of Post-Nominals

    While the Project Management Institute has many chapters in all over the world, including Canada, the organization itself is chartered and headquartered in Pennsylvania. As well, the certificate is issued in Pennsylvania. As for the person in my question, what I meant by he got the certificate...

    Proper Use of Post-Nominals

    Hello, Is it appropriate to use a post-nominal from a private organization in a military setting? I know someone who puts his civilian, private certification on his name. The organization is not even located in Canada and I know that he got that certification on his civilian job. Example is...

    ROTP at Civilian University 2004 - 2018 [Merged]

    Beg pardon sir, but your information regarding ROTC graduates is incorrect. ROTC graduates are required to serve a number of year as an active duty officer. In the U.S. military if I am not mistaken 'active duty' means working for the military full time. For example Naval Officers graduates from...

    ROTP at Civilian University 2004 - 2018 [Merged]

    Thank you for the explanation and pardon me for not understanding the in and out of the CF properly. I was thinking about the U.S. model in responding to this thread. Over there, while there are service academies, there are also ROTC programs in universities. Therefore, a high school graduate...
