    Canadian soldier charged with feeding cannabis cupcakes to artillery unit during live-fire exercise

    I think this is a good point. In the days prior to CADPAT and Tacvests and beards one of the soldiers got sick and puked in the field. He claimed it was from a hamburger from the platoon canteen that made him sick. Canteens were no longer allowed to sell products that had to be cooked on a stove.

    The Never-ending Roaming of Navy Accoutrements

    I was on a few of the Rite Simple exercises with 1 CBG HQ and Sig Sqn. As a crayon eating infantry type in the Sqn D & E Platoon it wasn't a bad gig. Not a great one or a jammy one but we were looked on as SMEs on subjects like land nav and winter warfare as well as a few other infantry type...

    Freedom Convoy protests [Split from All things 2019-nCoV]

    I have met this Colonel in Chief several times. She has always made time to say hello to my wife and I, and other families of the fallen. Edit to add: actually she sits down with Shirl and they have a short chat. I keep my mouth shut. She hits the nail on the head. In my mind its sacred ground.

    New Dress Regs 🤣

    My opinion - as a former RSM who is supposed to be a "dinosaur" I was often seen with my hands in my CAPDAT jacket pocket - the warm fluffy lining was great. Now mind you it was normally in the field that people saw me like this - with cam paint and a rifle as well.

    A Deeply Fractured US

    I didn't think so. SO my question is and I am sure many others have a similar question(s): 1. What did the documents relate to? 2. Who was responsible for the custody and security of said documents? 3. WHY WERE THEY AT A PRIVATE RESIDENCE AND NOT LOCKED UP -Like they should be. Congress -...

    A Deeply Fractured US

    Ok I looked at the warrant and the receipt for seized items. I may not know much but I do know you never phuque with classified documents - or take them home. WTF were they thinking? Or have I misread something...
