I think there must be something wrong with me then baecause I haven't seemed to find my soft spot yet. I don't understand what happened before every kid could breeze through pushups and now there are people who struggle to get out 5 it makes me go nuts and then i get in trouble because apparently I'm pushing the kids too hard.

I agree, that is one of the reasons I left. I tryed to improve my corps by planning FTXs that were all patrolling and one big weekend long capture the flag game. My Training Officer supported them, but not my CO (the computers officer). Then we got a new training officer from a different corps (the canteen Lt. woman) and she wouldn't go anywhere without proper washrooms. Despite my offerings of myself digging her a personal latrine, we never would go on an exercise.

My advice is you can't do anything about it, so just join the army!

struggle to do 5 push ups???
They must be failing Gym in school In grade 8 anything under 14 is a fail. Im far from top condition but I can do 30 at least. I would be in Cadets but my cousin told me what its like and It basically sounds like boy scouts with really strict leaders If I wanted to be in boy scouts Id join the one without the push ups and strict leaders If it was like Cadets is supose to be then I wouldnt mind the Discipline and push ups and such.

Yeah I guess some these kids are failing gym but what can say laziness is wining the war. There aren't enough people who actually think working out will help you. I work out about three times a week and I feel great.

i agree with most of you (i am from uk) in a way i blame the parents!!! if anyone says the wrong words to there kids (including teachers) the parents try to sue them so how are these kids meant to learn any sort of discipline. I am a woman and served in the british army and believe me i did not ask for a seperate latrine (as the guy above described) and no I am not a manly woman I have long and I still managed to beat the men at a lot of things. Woman can play on their sex in the Army and it used to piss me off as well but give credit to the women who done it for the joy of soldier and serving their country(and not to see how many men they could lay)and done their soldiering well!!!!

The general public does not like seeing little 12 year olds running around (or doing drill) with weapons. This is what I was told...

I think that a resolution would be to form an Canadian Army Cadet Force, like the British one. This one would emphasize more Army activities. I don't think that this will happen though because it would cost a lot more money, even though it could benefit the Army after the cadets would leave.

I totally agree with both of you but a cadet force something Canada is not prepared to do sure it will benefit the army but lots of people don't want that. And because of these people cadets in Canada is the way it is. Besides were supposed to be a peace keeping nation a "military superpower".

Actually the RCAC is a CIVILIAN youth organization that is supported by the military. The Army Cadets are beginning to get more exciting training (Adventure training) and the "Powers that be" are studying attrition rates and why it is so high. They realized (finally) that the present training bores most cadets and they are beginning to develop more exciting training. Hang in there, the changes are just around the corner! [Big Grin]

I was a range coach for a Cadet Corps not to long ago...with talking to one of their Officers I understand that I beleive it was just the Air Cadets just had their rifles taken away. OK, I've never been a Cadet, but I see Cadet's as being one of biggest pools of people to find recruits. If they are to do training similar to Army training, is a rifle not a good thing to learn?

Actually, they got certain rifles taken away. Apparently the sights had a tiny bit of radioactive material in them and the safety of our cadets comes first. The "powers that be" had to rethink the training because of Insurance/safety purposes and it's difficult to wrap the cadet up in cotton wool and maintain a challenging training plan. From what I'm hearing, the Adventure training (like white water rafting, mountain climbing, rapelling) has been well received by the cadet.
