Air-Forceca-Ico Question for Mods and / or those who run the board.

September 26, 2014, 11:53:52 by shadreamer
Howdy,

I did a bit of research for a novel here a while back and to show my appreciation, I would like to offer complementary copies to the board and / or it's members for assisting me.  The novel came out in July and is doing very well.

Before I posted anything specific, I just wanted to see how you wanted to handle this (or not). If you don't want me doing this, I'll certainly respect your wishes.

I can send copies to the board mods or owner to hand out, or you can run a draw and I can mail paperbacks (or email ebooks) direct to the winners. Alternately, I can offer them to the people who responded to my thread.

To be clear, I'm not looking for any sort of endorsement or advertising. These will be gifts, pure and simple. If paperback, I can offer up to six copies. For ebooks, we can discuss.

Feel free to send me an email to my addy if you prefer.

Regardless of the decision, thank you for providing this forum.  :)

Cheers.

xx USN Patent Leather Oxford Shoes Authorized

November 24, 2014, 00:51:59 by misratah500
So just got home from a trip down to San Diego and I picked up a pair of those lovely patent leather oxfords they sell at the NEX uniform store.

My Div O, my Chief and several other senior ranks that said they're authorized for wear and they even sell them at the CANEX now.

I was just wondering if anyone else has heard of this, is wearing them now, or can point me to the reference.

It's like the CANEX jacket in my mind, it's not issued kit but you can still wear them.

xx 6 RCN Sailors help battle fire ashore in Turkey- Nov. 2014

Six Canadian Navy members on shore in Turkey help battle fire


ANTALYA, Turkey -- The federal government says six Royal Canadian Navy members sprang into action to battle a fire while dining on shore in Turkey, dousing flames and evacuating a burning building.
National Defence says the crew members of HMCS Toronto were eating at a restaurant during a port visit in Antalya on Friday when they spotted the blaze.

Acting quickly, the group -- bolstered by two Air Force members -- grabbed a fire house, rigged it in the street outside the burning structure and sprayed it with water, snuffing out the fire.

The military says they also evacuated the building before local fire and police arrived on the scene.

(...SNIPPED)

xx What age is too old to commission

October 28, 2014, 22:20:17 by chadk
What age within the Canadian Forces would be too old to commission?  In some military's there seems to be age limits but I'm not sure about ours.  I'm 41.
