    Combat Boots policy 2018-CANFORGEN 127/18

    The CAF is still responsible to provide recruits footwear, lets hope that's what this is for.

    CFB Cold Lake Thread- Merged

    You may believe so, but you'd be naive to the Cold Lake-isms that take place once you're destined for that base. There are 6 units (AETE not included) in which an ACS tech can be posted to; 401, 409, 410, 417, 1 AMS and 10 FTTS...they're all under the purview of Cold Lake's own ETO. That base is...

    CFB Cold Lake Thread- Merged

    First, I would be skeptical of anyone telling you that you have a choice of units if you're still not in. Unless you're talking to the Cold Lake ETO/DETO or ACS trade advisor, you're not speaking with the people who make those decisions. Where you end up on the wing is the ETO's discretion, the...

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    I'd hope not, as I don't consider making fun of initiatives to make the CAF a more inclusive place for all, humorous.

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    I guess your appreciation and cognitive capacity wrt respect is equal to all the GOFO's who have touchy-touchy problems.

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    I'm vividly aware the post hinged on sarcasm, that's the point. By making "did you just assume my gender" jokes every time someone makes a gender based comment, it takes away the seriousness of the initiatives we're currently operating under to bring a bit of professionalism and respect into...

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    This is some 2nd year Pte level of humor, for your sake I hope you actually are that young. While many have been quite overzealous with their demands for inclusion and being referred to a certain way, responding to a run of the mill comment which uses she with that level of outburst is pretty...

    OFP timelines for CANSOF

    You're probably SOL then. The VOT-U CANFORGEN typically drops same time of year as the others, and right in the CANFORGEN it states that an applicant shall not be removed from trg until they accept an offer. For any OT application this year, an offer would not arrive until spring 2022. The only...

    OFP timelines for CANSOF

    This is the important bit, are you untrained or have you reached OFP in your current trade? If you've reached your OFP in your current trade, and are looking to apply to another then you're bound to whatever TOS you agreed to upon entering your current trade. Sounds like they have a 3 year...

    CANSOFCOM Reserves

    If by training in Ottawa you mean SOAC, absolutely not. The only reserve position for Assaulters are filled by veterans of the unit who have corporate knowledge to impart, a new member who's reservist would have very little to contribute.

    SAR Pilots

    SAR pilots are made up of fixed wing multi engine stream pilots. So while you're unlikely to deploy in a SAR capacity, the likelihood of being posted to a transport unit is quite high and they're operating outside the country on a near continuous basis in some capacity.

    Application from Reservist to JTFF2

    Old club, old rules. It is woefully inadequate and gauge water comfort and competency, so I urge anyone interested to not take that as the level required.

    Am I too old, unfit or uncertain?

    Joining the infantry now and at your age just seems like a recipe for disappointment. Sure there are opportunities for cool courses if you do well, but at the end of the day, it's still just training. Combine that with dealing with the sort of nonsense guys in garrison get put through just to...

    Leave Administration - Op LASER

    This thread reminds me of Matt Damon's character communicating with robots in Elysium. Sorry, humanoid....but, life's, not, fair.
