    Clearing CUSTOMS Split from: BOOT REGULATIONS:

    They are normally the ones who say "welcome to my country" in a thick accent.  I alwayse find them the best as they know our uniform and say thank you.

    Clearing CUSTOMS Split from: BOOT REGULATIONS:

    That sounds like my luck with customs.  I love it when they say "Welcome to Canada, is your visit business or pleasure" when traveling in uniform.  Enter the US in uniform and they take hour card, thank you for your service and send you on your way.

    The Land Operations Temperate Boots (LOTB)

    Does anyone have the new boots in the system?  What one is better the one with or without the zipper?  We were told you get to choose one or the other and that's it; no test or exchange.

    Is There Anything I Should Have But Won't Be Issued?

    There is no need for a 14" knife. I have no clue why your friend would say buy one, but I can tell you most units will not allow it to be warn in uniform. Being currently a Section Commander for PATs, I tell all my guys don't buy anything other then proper boots.  When you advance in your...

    What's the dumbest thing you heard said today?

    I don't know, I bet it was a $100 text message knowing how Rogers is.

    Reserve equipment

    Then I will also add that new troops from some of the LFCA, and LFQA units are issued MOB boxes (that is from second hand information so I can not confirm if it is true or not).

    Combat Hospital (ABC and Global) Premiere June 21st

    Well my rogers phone had service in KAF (09), and I know someone who texted home from the FOB a few times on theirs.

    Reserve equipment

    Most of the troops coming out of St. Jean have 2 X mob boxes, 1 X kit bag and a 84 pat rucksack if they are lucky.

    CP Gear OTW Shirt. Review?

    DirtyDog, I never had a problem with the OTW in the Afghan Summer, yes after wearing it for a while it was a pain in the a** to get off.  As for rips and tears one of my two shirts got a rip; due to a wire hooking it.  Other then that I had no problems (since we were never in KAF or CNS long...

    Do Canadian nursing officers carry guns like infantry soldiers?

    I recall a Padre visiting a Leger on my tour carrying his C7 and 9mm, and the one from our fob walked around with his C7, 9mm or both.
