    Travel Options, Getting from Port Elgin to Trenton

    Good news: my family got a service flight from Trenton to europe, although we needed to divert to my inlaws place in Port Elgin when we didn't get our first choice of flight. I need to get two adults and two kids from the Bruce Penninsula to Trenton. Anyone have options they'd care to chime in...

    Service Flights

    Much appreciated. The plus account wasn't in evidence on the 2 AMS DWAN page, but I'll be able to find them on the GAL.

    Service Flights

    So I'm on extended parental and I want to go travelling with my wife and kids while I've got time. I got on DWAN, and all I've found is CANFORGEN 085/01, Non-Duty Travel. 2 Air Movement Squadron's DWAN page is practically empty, with just a mailing address. What I'm looking for is a way to...

    Signal Operator DP1/training flexibility

    There are almost zero reserve trades that you are going to be able to break down occupation training into chunks of three weeks or less. Full stop, you need to have a serious conversation with your chain of command to avoid wasting your time and theirs. When I was running this training, it was...

    Where can I find CMP messages

    Thanks. My mistake, it is CMP 003/1. I will check it out at the office tomorrow. The topic is indeed CAFJOD, and I've reviewed the CANFORGEN. CMP 003/1 is also referenced alongside it, and if there is an explicit disqualification for my registering in CAFJOD there, I want to review the...

    CAFJOD Registration while on OJT, subsidized education

    Short version, I'm blocked from registration in CAFJODs while I've got loads of unsupervised OJT time ahead. It's locked to 2LT/ASLT or higher, whereas I don't get commissioned for another 5 years. Is it possible for me to get a waiver and register? If so, how? The references I'm seeing are...

    Accumulated Leave, BTL

    I'm about to amend a Christmas leave request, removing my short days, after being told that "x CDSB BTL does not authorize the accumulation of leave." I'm unfamiliar with accumulated leave, and I'd appreciate any guidance I can get in not wasting all of three weeks of leave that I haven't been...

    Mess Dues

    I've been hit with a bill for mess dues. I'm asking for more information including exactly what dates I'm getting charged for, etc, but I've got a few thoughts going through my head regarding it. First off, I haven't been invited/able to attend a mess meeting in at least two years. I was on...

    Getting ID in BC when you don't have any

    What do you need to start getting ID? In order to get it, everyone seems to require ID that she doesn't have in order to get ID. Her lack of ID has just become more of an issue as she can't hire a lawyer without proper ID. Her wallet was lost two years ago and she's made occasional attempts...

    Help contacting someone at Jericho Garrison?

    The powers that be rented the housing back. When there's no more housing, expect releases and divorces for folks posted there. Sent from my SM-G950W using Tapatalk

    Help contacting someone at Jericho Garrison?

    Tim, I asked around the single quarters building and sent you an email. Brian, It's in a locked, fenced compound. Pretty sure it's somebody in the PMQs, but between the Laser and RST scrambles, figuring out what random, possibly class A dude left his fun car that he's been neglecting is...

    Am I too old, unfit or uncertain?

    There's room for discussion as to whether it's best. If you're looking to balance quality of life (spending time with your family) vs an interesting work environment, you may want to consider a different trade. Since you're looking at the reserves as well, consider support trades, specifically...

    CBIs, benefits, admin for ROTP CT by Cl B

    Bottom line up front: What's the gameplan for a CT'd reservist who goes ROTP (RMC)? If there's no spouse or dependents, does their stuff go into storage? Where does it go into storage and what is the situation for access? Situation: Cost move, receiving PLD for permanent Cl B. ROTP selection...

    Changes to service medals announced

    Last time that I looked into this to see which of my troops qualified for what, the big reference was    From CANFORGEN 201/18: “THE GSM, OR BAR TO THE GSM, MAY ONLY BE AWARDED TO AN ELIGIBLE PERSON WHO IS IN AN ELIGIBLE LOCATION 180 DAYS OR MORE EITHER BEFORE OR AFTER THE DAY THEY QUALIFIED...

    Army Communication & Information Systems Specialists (Sig Op, Lineman and LCIS Amalgamation)

    Quite the opposite. There are often more deployment opportunities for reserve sigs relative to the number of trained reserve sigs. As has been posted, reserves are almost exclusively "core", soon to be called signal operator again. Sig Ops don't fix radios. If you want to do something else, it...
