In my last uniformed position in the CAF, I had "Readiness" in my job title. Shortly after taking on that position I discovered that a C17 crew was being held up because they had not conducted a C7 PWT.....even though none of them would be issued a C7, or even have access to one. That was quickly unfucked, and ultimately led to a wholesale review of the training requirements for missions....Our entire check in the box culture of ‘readiness’ needs a good scrub. Your example of how flossing relates to disaster relief is a good one. I once needed to qualify with a 9mm Browning pistol before a deployment, even though not only was I not issued a Browning pistol on that tour, but within the entire Task Force there was not a single Browning pistol.
