    National Truck Driver Shortage

    So, apparently there is a national shortage of truck drivers. Some people are getting their load day cancelled! Anybody working within CMP/DCBA can offer up options for people? Often, the closing day is 2 days after the load day (after clean)!

    Transport within place of duty

    I have a question about travelling within your place of duty. Let’s say you are employed at location X in city A and are regularly required to travel and work from location Y still in city A (not on TD: as part of your regular employment, about 2-3 times a week).  There is paid parking at both...

    Who should own CAS & why it can't be trusted to an Air Force (from A-10 retirement thread)

    In the end, I don't think who owns the aircraft makes a difference.  In the US and NATO doctrine, all air assets fall under the C/JFACC, regardless of the domestic affiliation.  It provides a better efficiency in how the assets are used and better coordination. CAS is only one of the missions...

    Aircrew coping as well or better than regular soldiers"

    What about the distance between a sniper and its target?  Pilots can kill considerably more people in 1 pass than an infantryman may kill in a career, but they don't seem to be affected by it to the same level that someone in a front line ground unit does.  I think that being detached from the...

    MPRR Update

    I am curious, when you complete a course, who is responsible to update your personal file with the completion of the course?  According to my MPRR, I haven't completed BOTC, Phase III, and Phase IV, but I have completed everything in between.  I remember, at least once, pointing out to an OR...

    Discussion Regarding CFRCs

    Sorry for the slight highjack, mods, move or split if too much out of line.  I did not feel it warranted an other thread. Otis, You guys make a good job, but often, I feel like recruiters seems to give wrong information to potential candidates. I was at the Abbotsford Airshow last week end...

    Quality of Life fund

    I tried a search (DIN, internet and here), but nothing came up. I've been told by multiple sources at my unit of the existence of a Quality Of Life (QOL) Fund for each unit that aims at improving QOL withing the Unit Lines.  Despite the multiple sources, nobody can find any solid reference to...

    MIM-23 I-Hawk

    Good evening everyone.  I'm preparing a Recce Brief on the I-Hawk and although I have all the technical information I need, I'm looking for possible recce confusions.  I looked through our Recce List and I can't really find anything that looks like the I-Hawk (I considered the Chapparal and...

    Circular Saw

    Good Day all.  I'm looking into buying a good Circular Saw.  I'll need it mostly for cutting wood but it may, in the future, be used for other purposes (ie:  cut through concrete) I think I narrowed my choice to 2 : 1- Makita 15A 2- DeWalt 15A Both are corded (I don't want battery powered...)...
