If only we could procure radios and trucks at such speeds. Oh well, at least I can grow a beard.
 
Well since the RCN went full NASCAR, the Army is feeling left out!  :facepalm:
:rofl:
 
I can't wait to see the ridiculous mock-'qualification' badges the razor wits in our JR's mess come up with. :D
 
Before I stick up any of my 4 decades worth of qualification badges (some of which are obsolete but still pretty cool)... I need a new shirt.

$750,000 buys about 12 top end manpack radios or likely only 2 trucks.

Patches were probably easier to push through the PSPC procurement labyrinth.

That English/Francais dude at a desk badge is RCMP and actually enforced in some places... usually pinned to the name tag.

Get it in velcro with CADPAT backing, in high-viz.

Isn't that amount under the threshold required to need Treasury Board approval?

Dunno, don't have my green procurement skill badge.

The only bright side to this is it will cut the number of people asking if I am a vehicle tech just because I have a RCEME cap badge. Assuming they look at my left arm of course.......

Good to see that the Army will buy me an Airborne t-shirt, or the regimental equivalent in other arms/services.  ::)
 
I find it amusing that the new badges are referred to as "Garrison Dress Badges".  What's old is new again.
 
Just another way of d;(k measuring. I’d prefer the suckmeter patch.

In another vein of this, I have noted a lot of units now moving rank insignia from centre of chest to the Velcro arm patch while wearing fighting order ... right back to where it was before Velcro on the previous olive combats.

I hear Ottawa will not pursue this $0 solution but will instead develop upgrades to armour and tacvests so that these will have new locations to attach Velcro rank somewhere in the front of one’s torso.
