    Where are you from now? I live in Trenton so grew up right next to the base. I'm divorced with no kids, so this is the time for me to finally pursue a dream.

    Anyone competition listed in 2021?

    Hello, It's been a few years since I was on. I enrolled in 2017 and VR'd from BMOQ in June 2017. I took the past four years and got myself into some decent shape, and applied again. I applied September 14th, 2021 and was put on the CL for Naval Warfare Officer, today (November 19, 2021) - it...

    Starting over

    Good luck to you Deskjockey43! I will still be at BMOQ when you come to St. Jean (not scheduled to graduate until August) so perhaps our paths will cross in person!

    BMOQ Regular Force 2014 - 2017 [Merged]

    Thanks Ayrsayle!  I appreciate it.  Sometimes I think we get so stressed about being there we forget to learn and try to have a good time or at least to make the most out of the stressful time we will have.

    BMOQ Regular Force 2014 - 2017 [Merged]

    Hi Natoba, I'm working out as best I can while working 8-10 hrs a day.  Running is my weak spot.  I jog a lot, up to 2K a day, but am not particularly great at running fast or long distances.  What standard should I be pushing myself to for running?  Are there other cardio building exercises I...

    Moustache - this may seem silly, however...

    That is one EPIC beard Swally! I want to do a moustache, but I have what I call the "reverse Hitler".  I cannot for the life of me, grow hair right under my nose.  If they brought back regs allowing mutton chops, I could rock an epic pair of those, but I fear the styles of the Duke of...

    BMOQ Regular Force 2014 - 2017 [Merged]

    The next one is in May, then I think for DEOs there is nothing until September. I think for you ROTPs there are some during the summer.  I'd contact your recruiting centre to find out for sure. Good luck!  I'm still waiting for mine... [:D

    Starting over

    I hope the process goes fast for you DJ.  I've been in the queue a year and a half now, due to some bureaucratic delays.  Today the selection board for my trade sits, so I am hoping to finally get the notice for when I leave.  However, in the meantime, I too am trying to improve my fitness.  I...

    Slow Erosion of Military History

    I want to thank everyone for their responses so far.  I am at work, so cannot write a great deal right now, but will respond later to more of the comments. Chrispa, I had a seminar with Terry when I was at Laurier back in the day.  At that time, there was a need for military historians as Jack...

    Slow Erosion of Military History

    Thanks for respond YZT580.  I completely agree.  I have no kids of my own, but have taken my nieces and nephews on excursions to Fort Henry and Fort York, as well as the National Air Force Museum at CFB Trenton and the War Museum in Ottawa.  I also agree with you about our education system and...

    Slow Erosion of Military History

    Hello, This is the first time I've posted outside the recruiting forums, but the announcement yesterday that Mackenzie King and Borden will be taken off our $50 and $100 bills respectively makes me a little saddened that even more of military history is being erased from the public face.  I...

    A bit about me

    Hi AbdullahD, I wish I could take a break from the running!  LOL, I am more of a weights guy then a cardio guy, so I am struggling with my runs.  My best friend (who is RCMP) and my girlfriend are both runners, so at least I have some people to push me along. I'm still in the process of losing...
