When I was DeckO in VAN, I recall only rigging for it once. And that was for WUPS.
Anyone with more recent experience, are you sad to see this go? Do you think they'll pull them out or just leave them in? Is the weight saving an issue in the Frigates?

I'm putting this in here because I'm pretty sure this person has wafted through the Department of National Defence and if he hasn't he'll be missing some epic stories.
Although this part I find incredulous that the author doesn't know that Tim...
A little bit of a whine here (okay, compared to the folks living in dry tents in the desert, we don't have a leg to stand on.)
Deployed to Bahrain, we are all living in 2 or 3 bedroom apartments. Each bedroom has its own ensuite, television, desk and door can be locked. We...
This has likely been said many times before but when this emergency is over I'm thinking the Canadian Military will take a major hit. Now we in the military could look at this as an opportunity to right some obvious wrongs within the department or we could just work hard to save our own hides...

Some great films from back in the day. This one had Fred Davis (Front Page Challenge host for all the youngun's here) visit a fighter base in Germany. Of course you have to have the young fella from North Battleford SK cavorting about Europe in his sports car and German Girl Friend on his arm...
Once, just one bloody time could the GoC be proactive and give its CAF members the recognition and support they deserve instead of making these same people fight tooth and nail for it?

Now on the CBC streaming site.
Watched the first episode today. Not sure why I watch TV military dramas, they only seem to raise my blood pressure because of the absurdity of it all.
Why do the Red Caps have a base all to themselves?
