we always wondered how MWR gets their money. Makes sense if you dont think about it too hard XD
35 is the oldest you can be and get a commission... and a big career pay raise.

If I went anything close to officer now a days it would be CWO or going in as an LDO. easiest program to roll into. But I figger my time with the forces is numbered. I dont want to become what I dislike the most. Ill take the lessons from the good un's and remember the traits of the bad un's and move on.

'sides, i want my family more than anything right now. The forces did what it was supposed to do. Give me time to mature and get my feet centered and teach me skills. And in return I will have given them 11 years of honest work. (mostly hahaha) Sometimes the paperwork gets filled out after the work is completed

Well it would have been the other Trudeau but no it was't a tax. Probably went to maintain our military's airplane or something.

Generally true, however, there are several possible exceptions.

I think the military broke one of my biological grandpas. He left college for the war, and he had lots of problems afterwards. I never really knew him. My dad was born a year before the boom. My other grandpa turned down the Marines and enlisted in the Army. He had some college under his belt and left to join, and since he'd taken Psychology in school, they put him in a US-based hospital helping with shell-shocked soldiers. My grandma from the first guy remarried, a man who fought in the Pacific. He never wanted to talk about it. They made sure he and his twin brother were rarely if ever on the same boat. Didn't want two to die at once.

I bought a house built in the 50's with integrated gutters on the front low pitch area. (2"/12" pretty low) We are installing a 6mm thick rubber membrane over 4 inch of hard board insulation on the low pitch part. The insulation will do two things, insulate the home and build up the height of the roof to negate the built in gutters. Then they will install traditional gutters on the fascia board.

The rest of the house is a steep pitch. (5"/12" - kinda steep). You can also see this part of the roof, compared to the low pitch part. Anyway, we are having architectural shingles put on the rest of the house. They tore off the roof and half the ship lap on the top to be able to also insulate the other part of the house.

It was leaking in one small area, and had two layers of old shingles on it; It was time!
