    21 May 14 - LCol Dan Bobbitt, 2 RCHA, R.I.P.

    The CAF, and especially the Artillery, have lost a fine officer. Everyone who knew Dan, liked and respected him immensely! He was a good friend, fantastic husband and father, a respected mentor and just an all-around good guy, as all those Bobbitts are. Thoughts are with the Artillery family...

    You know the army is getting into your brain when...

    When you yell "Deploy! Deploy! Deploy!" when you want your kids to get out of the vehicle in a hurry. When, after buckling the kids in their car seats, you accidentally leave the van doors open and your CF member spouse asks you as he backs out of the driveway "What?! Are they helicopter...

    The Spam and Scam Superthread- Merged

    As much as I agree that this is a major scam in progress, it may also be a case of a group of people cloning vehicles, and selling stolen vehicles with legit VINs.

    ADATS upload onto the CC177

    Most civies see a tracked vehicle and automatically assume "tank". It was almost (but not quite) forgiveable to mistake an M109 for a tank...at least it had a barrell...but still... ::) *sigh*
