    I gave up on that place when I realized the only guys on there were Sgt Majors looking to jack troops outside of work

    Agreed. Army.ca sucks.

    Except for the artillery threads, those bits are awesome.

    That's a great way to put it!! As ex Strat said, it's clicky as hell and I certainly wasn't one of the cool kids. Glad to see I wasn't the only one with issues there (I think it's been about two years since I was banned). In fact, I was referred to this site on a thread on the strat site where we were complaining about army.ca Was very happy to find this place.

    Don't know if anyone here usually follows the Memorial Cup but it's starting on friday and the host Brandon Wheat Kings have announced today that they're gonna wear a special military themed jersey for the opening game against Windsor. Pretty sharp jersey, just thought I'd pass it along.

    Sorta off-topic, but does anyone know an easy way to get from CFB Petawawa to Toronto? Is taking Greyhound to Ottawa and Via Rail to Toronto the best route?

    rent a car, or car pool if you dont have a car but avoid Grayhound as much as possible, I took one to Pet once, sweet mother that was something like 7hrs of boredome, on a ride that should only take 4.5hrs

    It might sound dumb in the beginning but I can't say i disagree. We definately need a larger Navy considering our coasts. But I am no expert, just my two cents worth of Canada's defense strategy.
