I had some good times wild thing when I served...many good people that I trusted...it's been awhile but every once in awhile we contact each other for conversation about our past...but absolutely some bad times of course but for the most part fairly good memories.
Those that could not carry their weight were dealt with as to an iron fist...so the unit held it's own which made for close comradeship amongst the group.

Man o man memory lane... I be-bopped a few TD's early 80ish. Don't remember bang bang Johnny but we had lots of blanks sneaking up on JLCs. Trooper... adjust your firing pin and pour on the oil. Memories... mine are fracked.

This is what I have been saying, every conservative will say and brag they did so much for the military and veterans but if they had none of this would have occurred. It was a smoke screen and con job. The problem now is I believe our navy is headed the way of a coastal defence force and there is no way we can afford new fighter jets especially the f35 so in reality there is going to be big changes coming and our military will become a territorial force for defence only much like New Zealand and some Europe countries.

Johnny, those dark days have already returned, well before the Liberals took over. The Army was only allowed to purchase half of their normal amount of live ammunition last year, and I think that simmunition was completely denied, as they cost even more. Plus how the Tories cancelled or cut back almost every benefit for the CF. They cancelled cost moves on release. they cancelled Post Living Differential (PDL) that compensated members who were posted into areas will higher costs of living, like Toronto and Vancouver. They cancelled severance pay. They greatly increased the members portion of the medical and pension plans. Plus there has been a wage freeze since 2013. So, under the Tories, Soldiers had less and less in their pocket at the end of the month, while the costs of living kept going up. So hopefully the Liberals will not only get better equipment for them to do their job, but make just being in the military better overall.
