I disagree. If your telling me you are spending all your time on diversity, SHARP, and other PC trg, then, I don't know what unit you are with (1st PC Rifles?). SHARP is over, Diversity is over, there are no new programs on the horizon. It was a one time event for the CF and the army to show they have given "due diligence" to the problem of harassment and gender integration.

Secondly, training. I was around in the 80s and let me tell you the trg we did was useless. We trained because we had money to train, not for any purpose. As I stated in another post, the idea of going to the field (a so called campaign season) was so entrenched in our minds, we didn't know what we were doing. At least now (at least in 1 CMBG) our trg over the last two years has been focussed (Ex PRAIRIE RAM say live BG level trg for 3 of 4 manoeuvre units and Bde level dry trg). I guess you could say there was more higher level CPXs, however, most of them were a waste of money and only benefited a few LCols, Cols and perhaps a couple of BGens. After trg them they were shipped off to a static admin job somewhere.

How has our trg been decreased? Secondly, when you take into account the roto schedule when do you propose we send units to the field for 4 months to sit on a bald ass hill (for the sake of "trg" of course...or was it for unit NPF mess profits - there always seemed to be too much of that happening).

It's easy to criticize what is happening now, however, I think the future is brighter then the general malaise the army was in 80s and early 90s. It had been so long since we did anything, we forgot how to be warriors.
