    Basic Maritime Wafare

    FYI MARS sublieutenants no longer go on the NOC; the operations lectures have been moved to MARS IV. Maritime Warfar Basic course is not mandatory but recommended if you can get loaded. I took it last year and quite enjoyed it, though it is basic as the name would suggest.

    Assume I'm in Halifax; off the top of your head does the base tailor have the buttons/flashes/loops required or should I be looking for them separately?

    article 5 medal for deployed members at sea

    Another FRE sailor here. NATO article 5 medal for Active Endeavour is only if you have 30 days continuous or 60 total on OAE.

    Living Off Base in Victoria after BMOQ

    Was at Venture in 2013/2014. You can 100% live off base with a gf if you wish - ask your CoC for the procedure. If you're at basic now, stop thinking about it. You have more important things to focus on.
