    CAN Enhanced (Permanent?) Fwd Presence in Latvia

    Russia already has a military presence in Georgia, but specifically told Georgia that they will not intervene in Nagorno-Karabakh for two reasons IMO. 1.

    CAN Enhanced (Permanent?) Fwd Presence in Latvia

    It's a bit of different story to compare Russian demographics of Crimea/Donbas vs Latvia. Crimea and Donbas had majority ethnic Russians while in Latvia, very few, and only adding to small total area of Latvia is ethnic Russian majority. (Of coincidentally, Riga has the most significant...

    Intelligence Officer / Operator

    It will depend on which BTL you get assigned to, and whether there is an int unit or organization willing to take you on for OJT. What you do for OJT will depend on a lot of things. How busy that unit is, whether they have pers available to mentor you, etc. Some int units will train you to...

    Jeans & mass punishment? #2

    I suppose charging the lot who failed to obey orders would be more hilarious. Summary trials for like forever. This no jeans regulations are dumb. But then again, these are suppose to be leaders who may have to give lawful order that may send men and women under their command to their deaths.

    Thanks for your posts. They identify some of the key issues that this forum and DS try to find the right solutions to pretty much everyday. I don't have my DS hat on right now, but I will use some of my experience as an user and DS of this forum. Nor do I speak for Mike Bobbitt or fellow DS...

    Recruits of the last half decade: Fatter, dumber and less motivated than before.

    I'm in general agreement with this post. Having taught a lot of BMQs, I find that an avg recruit is smart, but has short attention span, generally needs more PT and has a bit of self entitlement attitude (even some of the best ones). Once they learn that army is for real, and that they can't...

    Just finished reserve infantry DP1, now what?-survival guide

    great post. i'm going to add a few of my own thoughts with what seems like numbers are going to be trimmed again for Reserves, you are using up a spot that your unit can use for a soldier who has a bit of sense of loyalty to the unit and not solely using army for own benefit. with kit...

    09/10 Budget Impact on PRes - Unit stand-downs, Class B Freeze, and so on!

    same with my unit. i find it quite unbelievable that couple million bucks can't be found to at least pay for one half day training night per week, out of a multi billion dollar budget
