    @ Ex Strat: They can start by not keeping people in the training system for 3+ years stuck in bloody schools. These situations breed disgruntled troops/officers and end up with people counting down the months until the initial contract ends.
    I hope to God life in Battalion is nothing like Gagetown.

    i agree 100% with you on that. durring my time in getting a posting message to the battle school in Gagetown was like being told you had cancer.
    and once you were there you were basically in career limbo until you managed to escape back to the regiment.

    What do you do during battle school? It seems like a ignorant question, but I really have no idea.

    edit: nvm

    Really? I always fantasized that a real CF member would wear something in a Leopard print. For the Leopard crawl...

    Do you often fantasize about CF members in their underwear?

    We've had similar experiences then, except mine was in Farnham during a stand-to, and it was a heavy Franco dude carrying a stretcher...
