    medical history

    A few observations, none of which are intended to be harsh. You have laid out a complex history that nobody here is going to be able to give you an opinion on. Everyone gets to apply, not everyone gets to join. It's prudent to have a Plan B.

    The Great Gun Control Debate- 2.0

    How much do you want to bet that the next thing they try to confiscate won't be gas powered engines?

    I am interested in military especially Weapons Engineering Technician. F19.

    Welcome, and I will try and answer some of your questions. Bear in mind that I am neither a recruiting nor medical authority, so my advise is just that - advice. You are correct in assuming that engineering and weapons are well suited for each other. The occupations that currently involve...

    The Annual Confidential Report and Promotion in the Late Victorian Army

    Out of his depth in a car park puddle. And my favourite... Used my ship to carry his genitals from port to port, and my sailors to carry him from brothel to brothel.

    ‘White nationalism’ a threat the Canadian Armed Forces aren’t equipped for: watchdog

    Points to consider: 1. There will always be bad actors looking to take advantage; 2. We will seldom be ready when they reveal themselves; and 3. Our best response is to ensure that we have robust measures to deal with them. We can do little regarding points 1 and 2, and on point 3 I think...

    Medical expired

    If you're Class A reserve you may have to wait until you actually receive confirmation that you are selected for the deployment. Once that happens, there will be a screening process, and your medical will be one of the items. Your unit should then contact your medical support and request a...

    Favorite Issued Kit

    In no particular order... bivi bag, waffle scarf, and wool shirt.

    CAF now re-open to Permanent Residents

    Yes, PRs were permitted to join previously, but IIRC, that stopped after 9/11.

    CAF now re-open to Permanent Residents

    Good move. I will be reminding my recruiter to encourage PR applicants to continue to pursue citizenship, as PR status may prevent them from deploying to certain locations.

    Flight delay/cancellation - compensation

    Exactly. There is no guidance... probably because nobody asked. Maybe I should ask NAVRES Compt. Because that's going to be the most efficient way of doing things. I can see the first part, but HRG has no influence on the pay question.

    Flight delay/cancellation - compensation

    I agree, and the guidance does say "passenger", but we're dealing with the federal government here.

    Flight delay/cancellation - compensation

    Question for the other LogOs in the house. Recently experienced a situation where a member's flight home was cancelled, and he needed to work at his civilian job the next day. While he would have received Class A pay for the extra travel day, he would also have been out of pocket as his service...

    Blood Thinners

    Yes, the term internal medicine can be used to describe most specialists. Typical DVT treatment is anti-coagulation for three months, then if you develop another DVT, you stay on it for life. Without knowing your situation, if this is what we call an unprovoked DVT, then you would likely need to...

    Medical every two years not meeting standards anymore

    Possibly. Much would depend on where you are in your career, and what you're expected to do. For example a CWO who is expected to perform admin, and lead personnel, would probably be low risk. On the other hand, a Cpl who is required to fix airplanes, would have a more challenging case...

    British PM Boris Johnson and Now Liz Truss resigns

    Looks like Charles will beat his mother's record of 15 PMs even before his official coronation.

    Ukraine - Superthread

    This discussion reminds me of something Churchill once said: "An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile — hoping it will eat him last."

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    Then I stand corrected, but maintain my stance regarding the MPs and CFNIS.

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    They do, but they shouldn't IMHO.

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    This case is why I don't believe that the MPs or CFNIS should have the power to lay charges. We should align with what is practice in the civilian arena where the Crown prosecutor's office decides. To quote from Law & Order: In the criminal justice system, the people are represented by two...

    Have you been ghosted by the Reserves?

    Firstly, this site has no connection to DND, other than it is comprised of serving members, former members, and interested civilians. It is not an official government site. Posting here will likely have little actual effect on your situation. Secondly, I strongly suggest you go back to the unit...
