    1 in 7 Manitoba search warrants in study has serious flaws

    Letters of Last Resort

    Op ARTEMIS: Counter-terr/secur @ sea (merged)

    Brandon was a big guy in pretty much every sense of the word.  He was a friendly giant, with a big personality that could fill a space, and a big heart that helped his shipmates through any trial.  Rest in peace, Brandon.  Your watch is over.  :salute:

    On the ships I've been on (CPFs), there's a small gym back aft, containing dumbells, kettlebells, and other smallish weights.  Other exercise equipment is scattered throughout the ship; ellipticals, stationary bikes, treadmills, rowing machines.  Depending on the mission, if there's no...

    Individual Meal Pack (IMP) [Merged]

    Baked orange was ... interesting ... in the 90's.  My cadet corps were eating them on a sail weekend.  After everyone had a nibble of the dessert, we tossed the remainder to the seagulls.  You know it's quality food when even the shithawks reject it.

As for your main question, I have had subordinates go through similar.  This is what worked for them. First, go to the doctor.  Your C of C doesn't need to know the reason...
