    On Guard 90 and the 'Super Master Corporal's' Training Course

    Yup, different year. IIRC '94-'95 was that pppperiod. The CO directed that the tarps be left on for the road move from Chwk to Suffield for winter warfare. The Bde Comd caught the trail packet at a fuel point east of Calgary. He was livid when he was done questioning me. Of course, my attitude...
