Hello all. I am currently in the US Navy stationed out of Pearl Harbor Hawaii. Well, its time for another RIMPAC. My questions to all of the Canadian Navy is what is it you like to trade for Canadian goods. you know what i mean, some countries like to trade different coins, rums, hats, stuff like that. I would just like to know what i can take over to a Canadian ship which is already here that they would enjoy rather then just getting the same types of things from all the ships here on the water front. Please let me know and thank you for your help.

Ships hats, crest and coins all tend to be welcome additions to those that collect them so you can't go wrong there.

A major US news network last week had a lengthy segment on US Allies participation on RIMPA 2012. It focused mainly on the Canadians and interviewed the Cdn Comd, a couple of officers and some 2PPCLI soldiers. Some of the voice overs where on board a Cdn ship.

As it was FOX News, probably nobody saw it.

My point. Or nobody will admit it.

I believe FOX News requires extra dollars subscription from all Cdn TV providers. SUN News is in the same boat.

No one subscribes to FOX, yet very many criticize concurrent with complaining about the liberal media.
