I agree with what was there and it's a damn shame it's like that.

What I don't agree with are those that forget we're one army and all in this together.

Corruption in politics doesn't scare me.
What scares me is how comfortable people are doing nothing about it.

No - someone with loads o' time in.  Didn't you join at 16 or so?   So how can you be "old"?  ;D

As the person who created said video, I figured I would throw in my comments.

I created this based on 2 years of managing PAT/PARs in meaford for two years and teaching Reg F DP1 Inf for 5 years (Mostly the PAT/PARs). I combined probably about 15-20 of the worst troops I dealt with during that time (not including the ones who ended up in civie jail).

Hopefully people take it as a joke and nothing else. Enjoy!

Haggis... Haggis... Haggis? If it is the same Haggis I know, our last deployment together, I remember him regaling me with stories about how he was paid in salt when he first joined the legions.

Not saying the man is old, but to him a centurian is a rank, not a tank...
