    Explosive Devices in Amherst, NS

    It won't take long to get the 2nd suspect. Everyone knows everyone there. It's not too often my hometown of Amherst makes the news, but when they do it's spectacular!

    IR options - 17 Wing Winnipeg

    There was a decent sized storage room/closet which is where I kept my bike, military kit and winter tires. I don’t know if you’d get a kayak in.

    IR options - 17 Wing Winnipeg

    The only items I bought were a small bbq and lawn chair, for the balcony.

    IR options - 17 Wing Winnipeg

    Hey brother. I was at the Fort and to be honest it was decent. Everything was included (Internet, TV, and access to the pool). I was out $60 a month, the IR rate didn't cover 100% of the rent, parking was in a secure parking garage. There were a few vehicles broken into while I was there, but...

    Op Laser 2.0

    Why does this post feel like it is coming from a journalist? It has that "Mother Russia" feel to it...  Perhaps my mask is reducing my O2 levels. *edited to add.  I have no thoughts, I will do what I am told.

    AOR Replacement & the Joint Support Ship (Merged Threads)

    Oh cool, it's the JSS (true JSS..) that was envisioned back in the mid-90's. It's been updated with fancier graphics and different aircraft...

    There’s a rumour floating around on my local BBS that a new internet provider might be coming to town, and they’ll offer 56k dial up. 28.8k blew me away! 56k? Bring on Napster!

    Air Operations Officer

    Pay attention to detail.. Fail.  :facepalm: I just had a quick scan through the Air Ops positions and the bulk of the postings appear to be Winnipeg, Ottawa, Trenton, Greenwood, and Bagotville (there are spots at every wing though). I don't know if these positions will remain as is or if they...

    Air Operations Officer

    There is an Air Operations Officer SharePoint site with some information about the trade. As for postings, the trade is now listed in the career section of EMAA. From there you can see the postings for an AOO.

    AOR Replacement & the Joint Support Ship (Merged Threads)

    No. I'm sure the accommodations will be better than the old replenishment vessels, but there's no way they'll match what is on the Asterix..

    Compulsory Occupational Transfer [COT] questions

    Go to MIR. We all get it, but at the end of the day you need to take care of yourself. The last thing you want is to be deemed unfit for the trade or medically released in a few years because you can’t walk. I don’t think you’ll find anyone on here who has never once thought what I quoted...

    A Canadian Airborne EW Capabiilty? Split from The RCAF's Next Generation Fighter (CF-188 Replacement

    Interesting.  Perhaps in the new courses?  I was there when they were transitioning from the old to the new.  Our first 4 basic flights were low level VFR radar navigation flights. Perhaps they removed it? Our tactics flights were of a similar flavour too. SAR search patterns (dropping simulated...

    Lump Sum Disability awards and ethical use of funds.

    Your wife gave your "army buddy" your money? For starters maybe you should consider visiting your buddy, don't forget the Louisville Slugger. As for the money, at the time it sounds like you were still together, so there probably isn't much you can do.
