    Direct Entry Officer (DEO) questions [Merged]

    No prior service into a rare trade, with significant civilian background. I figured there's a PLAR too. Administratively I guess that's how it works. His offer letter stated "b. will be enrolled at the rank of Lieutenant." Still odd to allow people to wear their rank before them at least...

    Direct Entry Officer (DEO) questions [Merged]

    It sounds like CFRC is giving out ranks higher than OCdt at enrollment now. A friend of mine was commissioned immediately as a DEO Lt, and was authorized to wear Lt rank at CFLRS during BMOQ.

    My thoughts on EX Stalwart Guardian 2014

    I can only really speak for this point. In one of our attacks, the Armoured Recce told us they were in a different pos altogether. They were also wearing tilly caps and chilling on top of their G-Wagons. We were specifically told to watch for tillies, and shoot those on sight during attacks.

    Fresh water under the Oceans

    Interesting. However, wouldn't be better economically if we invested in more efficient sea water de-salinization? After all, why search for the small pocket of fresh water, when the ocean covers the Earth?

    Frag vest/weighted vest training

    Your unit's RQ may have flak jackets on hand, or you can try clothing stores. Apparently some clothing stores is more likely to issue you some kit, others not so much.

    Question on parading with your reserve unit

    Usually additional training (PT or map skills, etc.) so your life on BMQ/Trade course will be easier for you. Depending on your unit, you may be brought on weekend exercises as general duty.
