    JTF-2 Selection

    They are purple just like the whole rest of CANSOF. They wear the tan beret with whichever DEU they fall into. Now, them wearing DEUs... funny thought.

    JTF-2 Selection

    You are going to have to go there and find out for yourself if you are really that interested in what they do and how they do it. As much has you find on the CANSOFCOM site is as much as you are going to get here.

    How Soon After Enrollement Can You Be Deployed Overseas

    Well you will do your basic training then be sent to PRETC to wait for trades training, you may do SQ in the mean time. Your QL3 Sigop apprentice course (trades training) is approximately 6 months. By this point you will have at least a year in the military. Then you will be posted to a unit...

    for a SIG OP, which Infantry BN is best?

    It is a crap shoot really. I know sigs posted to an infantry battalion right off their 3s. Others never get there. Some people deploy in the BG CP, others are out with the companies, others are platoon signallers, or out with the RCIED teams or the OMLT/POMLT and even still others are working in...

    Sorry I don't. That is just what was passed on to us in an O group. " Field pay has to be paid out before 1 Apr 09 "

    That is what I understood.

    Also to add to my last, there are still lots of things that need to be sorted out; Like for example, how many days in a month equal a point? Is everyone getting backpaid at the first incentive, or at whatever incentive they currently fall under? I am sure there are lots of others, and...

    Right now it is the CLS order that all field pay will be paid out before 1 Apr 09. Also, if your unit has completed the paperwork, you still have to wait for clerks all across the board to finish off the paperwork for everybody, then everyone will get the pay all at once.

    Canadian Forces feeling strain over 2010 security

    Word in LFCA is that 2 RCR is the lead unit for ground troops to the olympics, to coincide with their preparations for high readiness. However I am sure there will be lots of troops from other 2 brigade units and also 1 brigade units out there. But with 3 RCR coming off high readiness and...

    All things LASIK surgery (aircrew/other -- merged)

    Yes you can switch trades in your first year, however it will be a little hard to convince them with a V4 eyesight on record why you want a trade that requires V3 vision. Good luck with that one.

    Is this even possible? Postponing or Splitting Time Between BMQ and 3's

    Not necessarily. You are joining a purple trade and will probably not do any environmental courses till you get posted too that element since after your 3's you could be posted to an army base and never use it. It is a waste of a training spot. You will more than likely get SQ, or NETP or...

    Following basic training...

    Because within purple trades there are still quotas for how many people within that trade can wear green, black and blue uniforms. Now if say the army DEU was understrengthed and the navy DEU overstrengthed due to releases or other reasons, it would be completely fathomable to see some pers...
