    CFB Cold Lake Thread- Merged

    [/b][/SIZE][/color] The last part of your comment is one of ignorance. I will chalk it up to you being the type who will forever remain single. Saying that, you want to venture a guess why folks get married and have kids? I heard that crap since when I joined some decades ago. If the military...

    Transition Group (Previously JPSU and DCSM)

    When I was at the IPSC , not the JPSU, nor are you, I saw many folks just leave or not even come in. How hard is it to call or show up to say hi and see ya next week? It's those folks who ruined it. When one spends a better part of the morning trying to track down these morons, it doesn't take...

    Should I stay or should I go?

    If money is what you seek, quit the reserves and get a job in the oil patch. No one joins the military for the money and for a reservist, it's for wanting to serve, not bitching about making $200 for sitting on one's ass. Quit your whining though maybe you (or your unit) will be happier if the...

    27 Aug 12: LGEN Thomas Lawson named C.D.S.

    A slow day in the news world. I guess the age of the new CDS is something the PA machine didn't pick up on for the press release. http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/story/2012/08/29/pol-cudmore-cds-tom-lawson-bio.html

    27 Aug 12: LGEN Thomas Lawson named C.D.S.

    Take away the F-35 circus(and maybe the Cyclone) and I bet dollars to doughnuts it would have been the RCN running the show.

    Gunner to Infantry Officer?

    He does not need "mommys" permission to speak to the BPSO. It's his career. He just needs to keep them in the loop. In the meantime, start the OPMEs, maybe some university courses via DL.

    Veterans Review and Appeal Bd: pressure to reject claims, spying, junkets (MERGED)

    Night-vision goggles causing neck problems in military pilots

    FEs' (first hand experience here) have their head on a swivel, more so than the drivers. Try slinging(guess it's back to more slinging, less shooting now) or looking under the bird when doing slopes few times a night for 3-4 weeks so everyone gets their mins.....it sucks for the neck. Then there...

    what to do to be FE

    The only smart folks staying out of that mess are NDT, as far as I recall. Makes sense for them to do so anyways. Rest of the maintenance trades(and the best trade in the RCAF) are in.

    what to do to be FE

    You obviously missed the pun in the sweeping floors comment. I have seen way more guys and gals go FE and yes, many have had the road to FE filled with major road blocks. myself included. Has 12 Wing been your only base as a tech? I ask because there are no FE's there and once in that Sea King...

    what to do to be FE

    Seeing you're ending up on Hercs, look at about 4 yrs before getting level A, meaning you can sweep floors unsupervised and the such. That puts you near the what, 5.5 year mark in the military? Apply then. Do NOT let your CoC bs you that you cannot do it. Follow up on everything you submit, and...
