    Best Base/Training Area for Tanks/Combined Arms

    Terrain wise it's pretty tough to beat Shilo for maneuver training. Other than those pesky 105 and 155 duds lying all over the place of course.

    Dress During Final Release Appt

    You’re kidding, right? A CWO was responsible for us having to walk around Wainwright with three different hats in our pockets during pre deployment training with 2VP in 96. You guys aren’t immune lol.

    Dress During Final Release Appt

    Troops hate to wear DEU and see it as punishment because a) it’s uncomfortable b) it’s high maintenance, and c) it’s expensive to replace. Oh, and d) the boots suck That said, I didn’t mind wearing it when it was required, parades and whatnot. It didn’t bother me to wear it for final out...

    Harry and Meghan had perfect platform for their ambitions, but royal life didn't pay enough

    What’s the difference between this and when Sarah Ferguson was failing miserably in the pop charts against her much loved paragon of ALL the virtues sister in law? The press plays favourites, not everyone gets the trophy, no matter how much we all deserve it.
