    Site Administration Welcome to the new Army.ca!

    Looks Good! I see there is an "Approval Queue" link in the top left corner. Would you like the DS to action anything with that, or to just leave it be?

    The Need for a Small Tactical Airlifter

    As much as it pains my fixed wing heart to say this, more Chinooks would probably be a more versatile answer for moving small loads around in theatre.  It’s got a similar payload to the Twin Otter and can get in and out of more places.

    Retention vs Recruiting

    Spot on.  It leads to a viscous circle; Junior members get annoyed with lack-lustre mid-level to senior leadership.  The most talented of our junior members have better options outside the CF so they pull the pin before they get promoted thus leaving less talent to promote into mid level...

    CEOTP (Continuing Ed Officer Trg Plan) 2003-2018 [Merged]

    CEOTP (Continuing Ed Officer Trg Plan) 2003-2018 [Merged]

    We’ve given up on Canada’s military, so let’s abandon it altogether

    Some interesting and well brought up points.  I note that some people have made the point that we need to make the CAF a more attractive employer for women.  I would say that we need to make the CAF a more attractive employer, period.

    Some Medical Questions

    Commuting to PFT in Portage?

    No. Winnipeg is outside Southport's geographical area and you will be too busy studying to spend two hours a day on the road commuting.  You will be able to go home on weekends.
