xx Army.ca Wiki Editors Wanted

September 22, 2020, 08:31:57 by Mike Bobbitt
All,

A few years back, we added a Wiki to Army.ca, and many members contributed to its content: https://army.ca/wiki

Recent changes in the forum and mediawiki software packages have made seamless login from one to the other impossible, and so the Wiki contents have stagnated. I am looking for a handful of editors who would be  willing to update and expand the information in the Wiki. For those who are able, I can manually create accounts and set you loose to make updates. Please let me know via PM or reply to this thread if you are interested, and thanks for helping to make Army.ca a better place!

Cheers
Mike

xx NATO partners agree to mutual air defense systems

October 24, 2020, 16:17:25 by Lancaster
On Oct/23/2020, see Canada below recently not signing on to mutual air
defence systems because we have the obsolete Air Defence Anti-tank
system  (ADATS), are we depending on other countries for defence systems?

Lancaster

1) NATO partners agree to mutual air defense systems.
...Ministers from Belgium, Britain, Denmark, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Latvia,
the Netherlands, Slovenia and Spain signed a letter of intent to implement a
systematic and modular Ground-Based Air Defense, or GBAD, to defend
against a range of air and missile threats.

 The system will include very short range missiles, including Stinger, Mistral
and anti-aircraft artillery, and short range and medium range missiles,
including the HAWK and Network Centric Short to Medium Range Ground
 Based Air Defense System...

xx Summer time Employment - Reserve Officers training

September 14, 2020, 01:56:43 by humblesoldier
Brothers and sisters its been impossible to get through with anyone at the reserve base so I put this to you. Are the forces still going forward with Full time employment during the summers during this covid period. How exactly has training been tailored overall for covid. Also please tell me how does officers training work with reserves as to what days and any information with schedule. I am trying to figure out how to balance a Civy job with being a reservist officer and then also being available for courses when they come up. What kinds of jobs do you have to balance with reserves. How do you do it. Thank you in advance

Do some trades have more class B contracts than other trades ? I have recently met a corporal with 6 years of class B service continuously like....renewals i think. Would a logistics officer or the logistics trade too get class B contracts like that ?

Military Quote
Beware the leader who bangs the drums of war in order to whip the citizenry into a patriotic fervor, for patriotism is indeed a double-edged sword. It both emboldens the blood, just as it narrows the mind. And when the drums of war have reached a fever pitch and the blood boils with hate and the mind has closed, the leader will have no need in seizing the rights of citizenry. Rather, the citizenry, infused with patriotism, will offer up all of their rights unto the leader, and gladly so. How do I know? For this is what I have done. And I am Caesar.
