xx Put on Goon!!!

Yesterday at 22:38:33 by Jaydub
When did Goon become such a popular movie on ships?  Every time someone is trying to watch a movie, someone will invariably shout "This sucks!  Put on Goon!!!" People in my mess are starting to make copies of the Goon video file under different file names. You click another movie file and... Goon!

I've seen this on at least three different west coast ships. Is Goon the new Boondock Saints?  Do they do this on the East coast as well?  It's so ridiculous.

xx New style Ball Caps

April 05, 2017, 10:03:53 by Lumber
We've been told that the new style Ball Caps have been approved. I even spoke with a buddy wearing one a few weeks ago when I was in Esquimalt.

However, I cannot find anywhere that indicates where/who we are suppose to procure these new ball caps from, or anywhere I can get a picture or design from.

Does anyone have the info I'm looking for? DWAN and Google searches both came up empty.

xx The swarm navy (split from: The Defence Budget)

March 19, 2017, 16:32:29 by jollyjacktar
Chris,  the main difference between civilian sailing and Naval sailing is of course the possibility of combat.  Sure, if you're just pottering from Port to Port on your Maresk rounds, at a steady state of speed, who needs numbers?  You can get away with a small-ish crew and accomplish the company's business.  We're not in the business, business.  We're in the war business and whatever else our political masters say we are.  You're comparing apples to oranges.

I agree, the meat interfaces cost a great deal over the hardware.

On the small craft MTB thing.  I knew an man who involved in the battles of what was going to replace the gate vessels for the reserves back when. He said there were two camps, those who wanted gun boats and those who wanted sweepers. As it turned out the guns went down to defeat and we have the MCDVs.  I would have loved to see gun boats in the fleet, you bet.

xx Westploy / Southploy

March 17, 2017, 02:30:01 by sailoraye123
I heard today a rumour that a medal was in the works for ships leaving for either set sail to west or south or east ploy that aren't recognized by other current medals... has anybody heard anymore on this.. this is a great feat for young sailors who are gone 4-8 months a year a little recognition for hard work and sacrifice will being great pride...

xx General Navy life

February 20, 2017, 13:41:56 by grizz123
good day all,

First day to the site so I don't know if i'm doing this correctly so bear with me.

So, I am a qualified  Pte in the INF RES with 2 mins in the army with a CT to go REG Navy and I got a couple Qs to ask, done some research but still need to dig.

1.Can anyone give me insight on these 3 trades Bosn, NES OP and SONAR op- from good experiences to bad, to trade training, to if they have homeports and for NES OP and SONAR op how the spec pay is.

2.Insight on military Housing and food on the west coast-From how it works, how much it cost monthly/ yearly and pro and cons

3. Netp- hows the go

4.How are CFB esquimalt and CFB Halifax- I understand the need of where you are needed but do you have input on where you are posted and if you can remain there.

5.NBD,ships team diver, clearance diver,etc - any experiences with those?

I am all for the navy, months at sea and the grit of it ,travel, teamwork and the dire need of it in hairy situations. I think its the service that is most beneficial, especially for if you want to go civi sides with all those transferable skills down the line, but as of now im in for the thick of it and would appreciate anyone who can give there input on how it was for therm.

Thank you for any replies, it will help clear it all up for me.

Military Quote
We shall not flag or fail. We shall go on to the end. We shall fight in France. We shall fight on the seas and oceans. We shall fight with growing strength in the air. We shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be. We shall fight on the beaches. We shall fight on the landing grounds. We shall fight in the fields and in the streets. We shall fight in the hills. We shall never surrender.

- Winston Churchill
