    OMM Revocation

    I'm not as impressed - he probably knew that should he fail to do this within the near future, the decision most certainly would have been made for him. This just makes it look like he has some semblance of honour.

    Ukraine - Superthread

    I wonder if Israel might now consider sales of Iron Dome to the Ukraine?

    Terminal Lung Cancer

    The Transition Centre (TC) would keep a list of all trained and current Designated Assistants (DA) in the area, regardless of what unit they actually belong to. If the unit in question cannot provide a DA, the TC can certainly help find one from another unit. Most TC are not able to provide one...

    Terminal Lung Cancer

    I am so sorry that your family is facing this situation. I would suggest that he immediately reach out to the nearest Transition Centre. The Services team there will know what support, benefits and services are available to him, and even to you. If you don't know how to contact the Transition...

    MIT offering "pirate certificate"

    Perhaps in the early stages.... but all bets are off with neurosyphilis

    MIT offering "pirate certificate"

    All graduates also get a raging case of syphilis, and scurvy!

    Ukraine - Superthread

    I've been wondering about this - how long will it take Russia to replace the losses, especially in fighter jets, armoured vehicles, and MBTs? Unless they gear up their industry, I'm assuming it'll be many years.

    ‘You either went to war or you didn’t’ — How deployments divide the vet community

    A very similar implied hierarchy also existed in the treatment of the ill & injured. Those injured in combat were the rock stars, and the lowest were those who suffered mental health issues here in Canada. Individuals (some very highly placed), and even the system itself, perpetuated this...

    28 Palestinians killed in Gaza as Israel hits Hamas with airstrikes; rockets kill 3 Israelis

    There was an old statement, apparently attributed to Israeli diplomat Abba Eben some 45 years ago, that the Palestinians, 'never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity.' In analyzing the situation, one also has to remember that the neighbouring Arab states have long had a vested interest in...

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    And the Soviets and Cubans were notorious for using 'Honey Pot' traps on Western Officers. I could see Russia and China doing it now.

    Help!! SISIP is trying not to honor my deceased husbands policy.

    Lynda, I am terribly sorry for your loss. I work for Canadian Armed Forces Transition Group HQ. One of our mandates is to help Veterans and families. I have contacts with the Pension folks. If you want to send me an email at paul.barnshaw@forces.gc.ca with details on your full name, husband's...

    Armyrick's Land Healing Farm...

    ArmyRick - one of the eye-opening things I learned years ago, is that some biomes need to periodically burn. Certain key native plant species have adapted such that their seeds will only properly germinate after exposure to fire. Regions of California fall into this category. That, coupled with...

    Get Your Butt Checked!- split from Changes to Political

    Just had a colonoscopy done a couple of weeks ago. Three very small polyps removed, hopefully nothing to worry about (I'll know more on Thursday). Had I waited and done nothing..... Thanks to the Versed and Fentanyl, I felt nothing and barely remember any of it. A day or two of discomfort...

    Ricin Intercepted On The Way To The White House

    Based upon her behaviour, I would suspect she is quite mentally ill (Persecutory Delusion Disorder?). Thankfully, she wasn't capable of putting together a highly rational plan of action. Ricin has no effective treatment and depending on the initial dose, death can occur in 3-5 days.

    Reserve Class B Contracts

    It also depends on where you go. For example, Ottawa is the land of opportunity for Class B. Other larger bases also have a number of positions. Otherwise, each Reserve Force unit will have a small cadre of Class B postions (typically a couple of Supply Techs, maybe an MSE Op, and a pair of FSA...
