    FORCE 2025: Informing the Army’s future structure

    You're premise is built on the exceptions. It does happen but it's rare. I actually agree. So let's fold the idea of needing sailors with army experience and vice versa and post soldiers to the army, sailors to the navy and aviators to hotels, like god intended. Right now that doesn't...

    Just FYI a frigate has bunks for around 254 peeps. Of that about 30 pers are in the Log Dept. Also when a ship deploys the crew is cut to bring on the com research, int, PAO, padre and NTOG. And that's not including staff if you're unlucky enough to be the command platform. For interests...

    Canadian Federal Election 44 - Sep 2021

    The story to me is the PPC pushing passed the Bloc now too. How far can they go ? The Libs and Cons are in a dead heat. It's a minority Gov in our future. Only the party is yet decided.
