hey, I know someone who has been smoking dope while serving for 10 years before WEEDFORGEN. I guess, because they've been doing it for so long, that just makes it ok? Or was there some kind of...regulation or instruction...hmmmm.
Eye In The Sky said:Would you say that if you were, technically, out of dress for a parade or something, or one of your troops was and for that 'bro, chill' level offence, getting extra's or RMs or a UDI for doing the same sort of things and it was caught in a pic on social media? I've said it before, I'll say it again; I don't get to decide what things I enforce and which ones I don't. I get to use some common sense sometimes on the application...that's it. I advise the Officers I work with at my level; that level isn't GOFOs. I enforce the orders on everything including dress on my subordinates because its part of my job. It's really that black and white.
If the dress regs are 'relaxed', then it should be for everyone. Full stop.
I was on parade for my Sqn CofC last year, and the Wing CofC the year before that. I can imagine the conversations with my SCWO if I would have showed up on parade day in Air Force 1As with my beret on. I don't care so much about the dress instructions...I DO care greatly about (1) standards that only apply to some, but it only being the rank and file are held accountable it when they color outside the lines. I've seen it too many times. Rank has it privileges, I get that too. It also has it's responsibilities; one of them being 'lead by example'.
CanadianTire said:Back to the issue of Div patches, I noticed that CP Gear now offers wool DEU Div patches (meaning no CADPAT, just the div colour patch) and the default is to have them Velcro back. While this makes sense to me, I wonder how long before someone gets in trouble for wearing that on combats?

Send your suggestion through your Formation's Dress Committee, if you are following the references.
And why don't you think there was a directive to wear the patches? Considering they are issued in theatre.PuckChaser said:I don't think its reasonable. If you're wearing CADPAT it should be with a red and white Canadian flag unless a theatre standing order indicates another specific one for operational reasons (IE the IR flags in Afghanistan). If whoever is doing this thinks CADPAT isn't "Navy" enough, they should be wearing NCDs and can throw the Ensign on there all they want in accordance with RCN dress regs.

Hence the e
How are these categorized; USQs or something? I haven’t seen any Gen on this but my flow is from a WCWO.
I’m not a SME but I think the first step would be requests for them to be recognized as a specialist and then the process to get them approved, like RCAF did for Space Specialists and the RCN did with their FP and Boarding party members. I’d guess this would be a C Army initiative?
