    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    Just out of curiosity, why would we need to have Reg Force leaderships for these Res Force troops? Why not allow the Res Force leadership to deploy with their own soldiers? I realize a single Unit providing a sub-unit is likely not feasible, but we do/have created Companies complete for DOMOPS...

    All things Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV)

    I'd listen to them if they at all sounded legit. According to this site, not so much. Opinion | Why can't Americans stop looking for false Covid cures in the feed store

    Senior Officer numbers - FB post by Col (Ret'd) Michel Drapeau

    Those numbers are from Guardian so the MCS reporting website tells me. But...The numbers change significantly if I were to generate numbers showing which positions have the correct trade and rank in them. I've found that no two reporting methodology reports the same numbers for supposedly the...

    Canadian soldier charged with feeding cannabis cupcakes to artillery unit during live-fire exercise

    Ah, but civis cost SWE which is in short supply. Plus then you then have to buy from CANEX (Mind you, you are supposed to give them first right of refusal anyhow, but I've seen that rule broken) or the civies will rat you out. Civies will likely only have hours of work 0800-1600 so what...

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    I witnessed a judge offer one of my soldiers two choices when found guilty of domestic abuse: Probation or Volunteer to go to Afghanistan. I was like "What?!?!?" Sure enough, the next training night (He was a reservist) I received a memo volunteering to go to Afghanistan. I declined to...

    Wanted CP Gear Stealth Suit top or top & pants sz large

    I've got a XL jacket I'd let go. It is in like new shape. I think I wore it for two weekends. I'd sell it for a fair price (goes for $165 at CP Gear) plus shipping, or make me an interesting trade. (Into IT kit or tools)

    New Canadian Shipbuilding Strategy

    But nothing is ever off-the-shelf.  For example Canada has different health and safety requirements so there has to be some modifications to any item of this size and scope.  It's the amount that makes the difference.

    Can you join while on testosterone replacement therapy?

    OK.  I'll say my bad for the shake your head comment.  Not required.  But you ticked me off with your comment about being too open. "some people are way to open about things.  Answer the questions honestly but sometimes the way a person answers the question can make the difference was all I was...

    Can you join while on testosterone replacement therapy?

    So your advising people to be less than truthful when applying?  Shake your head.  I've had to deal with troops who were less than truthful and guess how that ended?  A lot of admin and they were either RTU or released.  True story, I had a soldier on two separate Infantry BMQ's, one was...

    The Post-pandemic Canadian Armed Forces

    Saw the issue with civilians first hand the last couple of months.  High priced help was wondering why none of them were on the calls held after 1600.

    Boosting wifi range

    I'll second the Alfa products.  I've used a bunch of them and they do work as advertised.  I've taken a single bar connection and turned it into a 3-4 out of 5 one with the directional antennas.
