I'm seriously wondering how junior NCMs live in Ottawa and Comox (and a few other places, but those two being particularly nuts for housing and no PLD).
I keep expecting another "Cold Lake panhandler" or a "family forced into bankruptcy" article in the media - I'm actually a bit shocked that...
Oh, I'd say around May/June (maybe July?) when the CAF blew the whistle on treatment in Long Term Care homes. That's not even a year ago.
Or when the CAF went to dig out Newfoundland during the last big snowstorm.
Or any OP LENTUS mission, really.
Or any Search and Rescue-related articles...
Not sure if their ranks of Aircraftman/Aircraftwoman and Leading AC/ACW will change as well, like ours did.
I've said this before, but the RCAF could have just copied the USAF or USN's jackets (with precedent since the old RCN aviator jackets were the same).
But no, whoever designed them purposely made them fugly.
It's probably an April Fool's joke, but if not...
How well (or not) are our allies retaining NWO-equivalent officers? Is not wanting to stay in the trade just an RCN thing, or is it prevalent throughout allied nations?
