Great life experience
Combat engineer, 31 combat Engineer Regiment, St. Thomas, ON - February 9, 2016
The Canadian Forces is like no other job you can learn from in the country. The training and experience has prepared me for life and other jobs a way nothing else can.
I have learned everything from survival skills to combat knowledge. How to detect and disarm mines. How to build a bridge or navigate at night. How to use radio communication to call air support and medical evacuation.
The people you work with in the Army are extremely hard working and dedicated people. They are extremely serious and strict but look out for their fellow soldiers.
The hardest part of the job is the lack of sleep one encounters while still having to perform duties such as route searching, urban combat, observation point.
The most enjoyable part of the job is the camaraderie you build with fellow members during your time in the forces.
