    Hooah. Canada FTW.

    I attended the funeral of Cpl. Warren the other day. That was also intense. :wtc: I knew the guy, he was from our sister unit.

    Don't see too much of that kinda stuff unfortnatly, smaller community + more anal commanders than you fella's in iraq :hs: A close friend who's a former A-stan vet from 2 tours said people usually weren't allowed to take Camera's onto the field and on patrols like a lot of your men do. It sucks but I try to grab as much video from over there as I can.

    so does the canadian army supply the scopes to mount on the M4's? does our military supply any?

    First off, it's a C8. It comes standard with an Elcan C79 scope. the 79 comes from the fact that it was created for the C7 and C9 (M16A1 and M249/SAW).

    thats some pretty hardcore action. how could the guy filming catch all of that fighting? i wonder how long the whole thing lasted.

    lol, combat cameramen ftw. I had a couple buddies mount video cameras to their M4's and M16's. Footage swept their unit like a wildfire. Wish I still had the DVD.

    :bigthumb: gl but they are hardly taking anyone in as int officer, anyways not in the reg force. I spent the last two summers at the mega and there has only been one int officer (AF) go through there, to the best of my knowledge.

    ps. graduated phase 2 yesterday :bowdown:

    Congrats on completing CAP! :bigthumb: Can't wait to salute you one day if we cross paths.

    Yeah Int officier is the hardest to get into in the PRes too, but I've got letters of recommendation from 3 LCols, 2 RSMs and a bunch of low rankers, so it should help my case. Gonna try at least.
