    The Kingpost is Dead! Long Live the Vertrep!

    SUPPLY DEPOTS SHALL NOT ISSUE A HALIFAX CLASS KINGPOST OR ANY SPARES RELATED TO THE EQUIPMENT TO ANY BASE/UNIT/SHIP. STORES DEMANDS ARE TO BE CANCELLED. Depots as a general rule have no idea what equipment belongs to what. They are merely orders in the system to them, this should be directed...

    Three broad steps to the AR/MEL Process Advisory Disclosure Decision AR/MEL process alone is minimum 7-9 months if a mbr follows all the steps. The longest step in the process is the disclosure process as they will not look at the file until six months after it is issued even if the mbr has...

    FORCE 2025: Informing the Army’s future structure

    Div TCs are low man on the totem pole for kit so they hold almost none and kit like that is not held inside MSAs. The vast majority of our nightfighting gear outside of CANSOF was held in the CMBGs with a small reserve in the depots. It was like much of our equipment managed, controlled and...

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    A unit can initiate and conclude a AR outside of D Mil C or DGMC control or awareness as they have no control over the day to day disposition of that person. I've always included the career manager when I deal with DMCA but that is not a guarantee

    Mandatory Vaccination by November 15

    I released early in the vaccination process but Health Svcs was pretty adamant about not releasing individual information to CoC so I would be surprised if they turned around and starting naming names. In my neck of the woods they even put out a base wide email saying that no one was entitled...

    Mandatory Vaccination by November 15

    Exactly it would only come up if the mbr themselves brought it up. Yup, it is a common myth that it precludes further federal or federally regulated employment for 99.9% of the jobs out there. There may be jobs out there that have the ability to delve deeper into a mbr's past and ascertain...

    Mandatory Vaccination by November 15

    It is an honourable release it has almost zero bearing on one's future. It is no different than getting fired from any other job in the grand scheme of things

    Mandatory Vaccination by November 15

    Moot point, we do anyway for anything less release item 1 and even then under CBI 208.845 we will still move their family and their HG&E. If I was to wager a guess if we release ppl for no vaccination then it will be 5D or 5F which are honourable releases and all entitlements and benefits as if...

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    It happens more than folks think it should as the lack of understanding of our admin system is rife throughout the CAF. The funny part is is isn't in the AR DAOD but is in the DMCA 2 AR messages that COs are not to release pers under AR w/o consulting with DMCA first. That said our AR...

    When Pop History Bombs: A Response to Malcolm Gladwell’s Love Letter to American Air Power

    While a highly engaging writer, Gladwell could turn any anecdote into evidence. If you go into his books with that in mind they are mindless entertainment

    FORCE 2025: Informing the Army’s future structure

    True, although the depots have largely been purged of old(er) fleets spare parts, although surprises do show up. My fav example is there is a part in the depot with a 1956 date on it and is associated with the MLVW fleet. Likely what has happened is as the replacement vehs have come in over the...

    C3 Howitzer Replacement

    That is essentially how our ammo works. I think we can't get caught up in thinking of our ammunition holdings based on someone's PRes range experiences. There's a difference between allocation of ammunition and actual stocks. Ideally there is enough ammo for people to get the training they...

    Best Base/Training Area for Tanks/Combined Arms

    I don't think either is good for combine arms or tank trg but are excellent trg areas. Dundurn has great terrain for CA/Tanks but IIRC the smaller size of the trg area doesn't lend itself well to live fire or larger maneuver past Pl/Tp level.

    Best Base/Training Area for Tanks/Combined Arms

    Oh I get it but more than a few ppl have suggested CL as some sort of saviour trg ground for the CA As for de-confliction we already have that in spades with normal CA trg areas, no need to involve the RCAF if we can help it :)

    Best Base/Training Area for Tanks/Combined Arms

    CL is not really much of an option due to the Oil & Gas Infra that runs through it combined with the air weapons range so it limits ground stuff. Wx has O&G but not to the extent of CL and it is built in a way that allows for ground maneuver to go on. It is also a RCAF asset and heavily used...

    FORCE 2025: Informing the Army’s future structure

    It is a good example. Lots of centralized costs on the institutional support side that are not attributed well that led to poor decisions because the decision maker(s) often don't deal with the downstream or upstream costs because we don't use a transfer pricing model
