    Polish Civilian and Military Leadership Killed in Crash

    Any thoughts on the fact that Vladimir Putin is heading the Russian side of the investigation? I'm sure that KGB training and FSB connections would come in handy -_-

    Allegations of NATO complicity in heroin/opium trade in Afghanistan?

    You know what baffles me about these conspiracy theorists is that since this involves thousands of military personnel, supposedly protecting the poppy fields and the poppy harvest, why is it that none of this has gone out to the public from whistleblowers? I'd be there's at least one person with...

    Allegations of NATO complicity in heroin/opium trade in Afghanistan?

    I am exposed to a few people (which surprising that this has not yet been brought up in these forums) who have the opinion that NATO or the USA invaded Afghanistan in order to secure a steady supply of heroin to traffic for the rest of the world. One of these people specifically say that the...

    Japan reveals "SECRET NUKE PACT" with US

    Link doesn't work. Oh, I'm sure the Japanese public would think well of the Americans putting nukes on their land, you see, because last time that happened, it went pretty well. It'll also go over really well with the xenophobic ultra-nationalist groups there as well. I'm sure they'd...

    armoured trade

    I just heard that there were absolutely no more Combat Arms spaces. Is this true? I heard this from a guy who went to a CFRC and asked for Combat Arms and all the recruiter could offer was Sig Ops.

    Pay: Statements, Backpay, Benefits, Deductions (Taxes, T4), Deployed ect... [MERGED]

    Engineering, either one of the Navy's engie MOCs. I have heard around here that it may come back in 2011. Logical, since that's about the time that the Navy gets their centennial monies.

    Pay: Statements, Backpay, Benefits, Deductions (Taxes, T4), Deployed ect... [MERGED]

    Also, I'm nose-deep in student debt, and the former bonus of $40k would greatly help. I've seen what student debts can do to someone (my sis pays $850/month, interest only), and I'm debating whether or not to delay my application a year so I'd get the bonus, so that's definitely a factor as...

    Duty shifts?

    Yes, I was going to ask specifically about how it's like for engineering officers on deployment at sea and alongside, but I wanted to see the full gamut the different experiences. Is there a more favored shift? Like the morning/afternoon shift?

    Duty shifts?

    What the answerer has experience with and what they know. Current posting would be a good start, and in reverse chronological order if possible. Then insights and gripes are welcome. Yes, I understand this is a broad topic, but I'd like to get as much info on it as possible.
