    Resigning commission to change nationality?

    Isn't a commission for life though? And therefore if you still hold a commission you can be recalled because of the oath of allegiance.

    Resigning commission to change nationality?

    What I am wondering is: If an officer retired from active duty, and decided, for whatever reason, they wanted to become a citizen of another country. Would they have to resign their commission? This is research for a story I am writing... If this is in the wrong spot please move it.

    Time in Rank needed for promotions

    Engineering Officer was the trade I was thinking for the character.

    Time in Rank needed for promotions

    If this is in the wrong spot, and/or been discussed before, I ask forgiveness. My searches have been fruitless. I am doing some research for a novel I am writing, and I would like to have a reasonable timeline for the characters. How long would it take someone who graduated RMC for Civil...

    Survival FTX for Army Cadets

    The FTX went well. Unfortunately for me I was taken off the project... At our September sports night, I was playing basketball with the cadets, fell and broke the patella tendon in my right knee. I was in the hospital when the exercise was on.

    Survival FTX for Army Cadets

    We do at least two bivouac FTXs each year, plus a Nav FTX, which is what you described above... This is only for the senior cadets, so that is why I'm planning something a little more in depth. As long as we don't have any new "senior cadets" they all will have done multiple hoochie camping...

    Survival FTX for Army Cadets

    Thank you for the quick reply. :) I absolutely am going to be contacting the Zone Trg O. As I understand, they are unavailable for the next while. The person who was the Trg O is moving to Ottawa, and the new one coming in, isn’t here yet… At least that is what I’ve been told. That said, this...

    Survival FTX for Army Cadets

    Good day to you all, I am a volunteer instructor with my local army cadet corps. I am planning a senior cadet weekend for the beginning of this upcoming cadet year. I spoke to the cadets asking them what they wanted to do, and it was unanimous that they wanted to do a survival weekend. From...

    Drill Question for my Corps

    When I said RSM, I meant the corps RSM, and as such senior cadet. Thank you both. Your answers are exactly what I needed :)

    Drill Question for my Corps

    So, my corps (army) is getting ready for our annual inspection, and I can't seem to find the info anywhere in the drill manual. When does the RSM join the parade? Does the RSM fall the corps in? Or does the RSM come on with the officers, and take over?

    Interview advice (merged)

    Hi All, I am applying to become a CIC officer, and I just got the date for my interview. I know that the CIC isn't the same as the Reg Forces, or even the Primary Reserves, but I still want to succeed at my interview. On another thread there was talk about an interview prep form, but when I...

    CIC application time.

    That is fair enough. Thank you for your response.  :D
