    Afghanistan: Why we should be there (or not), how to conduct the mission (or not) & when to leave

    Speech: When you put your child's writing out in public in the media, they, and you became a public figure. Part of that involves positive press, and part of it involves negative press. If you don't want your ideas (or the ideas of your children) criticized, then they should not be made public...

    *Milnet staff hat on now* Mellian: The staff here as a whole have had to lock a LOT of perfectly good threads because of your of you devolving every thread and making it an argument about yourself. Your name is coming up far too often, and before you cry victim, you need a serious evaluation of...

    Personal attacks, deserved, ad hominem or otherwise are NOT ok. The posts in question have been deleted and the topic is now locked. *Milnet.ca Staff* As a note, there are certain members who seem to have all the threads they participate in getting locked. Anyone heard the expression "the...

    Transgender in the CF (merged)

    You don't think dealing with the psychological, medical, and hormonal issues of an ongoing gender transition will have any impact on performing one of the most stressful jobs on earth?! You're kidding yourself, and no one here is buying it.

    Transgender in the CF (merged)

    I'm not talking about being 5'0", I'm talking about being 3'2". And I believe (though would have to find supporting documentation) that there is still some kind of height requirement.

    Transgender in the CF (merged)

    For this person, their gender issues are left unresolved. They are still legally, and somewhat physically female. Why on earth should the CF take them on with an ongoing medical/psych issue? Again, you join us, we don't join you. It's the applicant's responsibility to meet the standards. We...

    Transgender in the CF (merged)

    Those two sentences are contradictory. You say their issues are left unresolved, then go on to say it is a non-issue. I would imagine this very contradiction is part of the reason that the CF does not want to take applicants until the issues are all resolved.

    Transgender in the CF (merged)

    Disclaimer: I am not aware of any policy, and this is supposition based on second hand knowledge of a similar situation, not in the CF. During a gender transition, a person is legally one sex, and at some point in the transition, becomes another sex legally. Typically, a person will be...

    Format of Memos

    Moe: I've had NCO RMS Clks submit memos with "Dist List" on it, and have had course staff teach it, it's a very common mistake, and one I think most people aren't even aware of. It's apparently only us anal retentive whackjobs who notice. ;)

    CAN Officer Returns to AFG With Artificial Leg

    Getting a single leg amputation is vastly different from a double leg amputation. Just as getting a double above-the-knee amputation is vastly different than a double below-the knee. Numerous factors will affect a person's medical assesment, recovery, and so on, depending on the the location of...

    How are Chaplains perceived by other CF members?

    As a CF Member, and an Atheist, I have an enormous amount of time for the padre corps. I have met dozens of padres in my travels, and have never once felt preached to, or any attempt at religious coercion of any kind. I don't think I've ever heard them mention the word "God" to me, outside of...

    Previous drug use question 2002 - 2018 [Merged]

    You might want to quote your source on that one. Actually, according to most experts (start off with On Combat by LCol Dave Grossman) they show pretty definitively that marijuana use amongst American soldiers in Vietnam significantly INCREASED incidents of post traumatic stress. The reasoning...
