    VRAB Entitlement Reviews

    After a favourable hearing, the file is sent back to VAC to handle payments. Should be reasonably quick from there, but I don't know the exact time frames.

    Hyena Road

    I went to the premier here in Ottawa a couple weeks ago. It's a decent movie, but I found the narration was cringy in some spots. It came across as trying too hard to be poetic and deep, but all it sounded was cliche. The video, and some of the narration was really good. Basically when he talked...

    Military Service on your Resume

    That is perfect, thank you! When I googled military skills translator I got a lot of American sites and I don't know what a Cpl is equivalent to in their numbering system.

    Quick question about Remembrance Day

    I've never gone to a ceremony outside of uniform, as the crowds really bothered me. This year, due to events, I want to attend the ceremony at the National War Memorial in Ottawa. I know its ok to just put your medals on your jacket, etc.. My question is, do people wear their berets? I've heard...

    Is PT done every morning at BMQ?

    Things might have changed, but when I did BMQ (in 2006, so not long ago really) PT started after the physical fitness test.. So day.. 2? or 3? And it happens every morning, except when you are in the field. Evening PT happens if you piss off your instructors. You will be running a lot. And when...

    Africa in Crisis- The Merged Superthread

    Congo and the General More on link. It seems someone in a position to make a change is realising spending over $1 billion a year with no noticeable improvements is not sustainable. I wonder if this new policy will be effective, or if as soon as casualties happen if they will be back to hiding...
