So trying to find the silver lining....
I believe the expression you're looking for is, "clutching at straws."    :nod:

Don't be counting any chickens till they are in front of you. So what are the chances they would base fighters out of Comox again if they got some operational airframes?

Why would this only apply to retired vets? What about current serving members who were injured and received a disability award?

From my understanding (info comes from a pow-wow that had both CM's and D-DSigs) LST & Core were not submitted at all.  After the last attempt at spec pay it was seen that "on paper" the two other trades simply didn't have enough compared to civilian side to warrant further review of specialist allowance. 

It wasn't that they didn't work hard, or that they were not skilled.  It was a comparison to civilian compensation as a whole.  In the civilian world lineman make about or less what they do in the CAF. (AGAIN AS A WHOLE, I know someone will say but my line buddy makes 100k splicing single mode with Bell, but that's a one off, not as a whole).  Whereas techs and server admins make MUCH more as a whole in civy land (*Cough*Cough* civy contractors at CFSCE or 765/764 Sqns all make 100k+ and not just a few of them).

Its not a slight at all to lineman, its a comparison to civilian compensation AND retention.  My last look at that access file from CMP that shows the trade mannings showed Core & Line both healthy, while CST (78%) and IST (53%) both critically red was another factor.

I wish I could pay it in smaller payments though, I know 30 dollars a year isn't alot but I don't really have a job  so I pretty much depending the money my parents give me. It would be really cool if you could pay it monthly. Again though, I do plan on subscribing, probably by Christmas.

Perhaps think of subscribing to the site.

It helps Mike keep the lights on, you'll notice that the holiday motif is alive and well!
