Having tatts. of your Drill Cpl's mother or sister would not fall under "tasteful" Besides, I think Skippy never had a mother...ever hear of him 5-0? He's the reason the garbage can with the brass plaque on it is in the front lobby of the Drill Hall. Used to have to stand in it, standing at ATTENTION and salute for 45 minutes for "remedial drill training". It was NOT punishment, just added motivation for you to pay close attention to detail. Ah yes...the bad old days....

I would say he was long before my time. When I was there the one to watch out for was Cpl. Warkentine. You could hear her yelling all the way on the other end of Regina and I swear she would just make up things that were wrong just to yell and scream at us. I went to many "learning assistance parades" as a result of her and my hatred for ironing/bedmaking.

Please read the sticky about PMing questions, people....

You don't need a post-secondary education, but it won't hurt to have one. The most important kind of education to have, is eduction in life (ie. life experience). One of the guys in my troop was in university for 1 semester before he was sent to Depot, one of the guys I work with didn't do any post-secondary. A few "older" guys I know in other detachments don't have any post-secondary either.

If you're going to be applying for a college as well as the RCMP, I'd take a second and figure out which one I wanted to do. The timeline for the RCMP application process might not work out so well with any scholarly timeline requirements. Also, the financial aspect of signing up for courses, getting through a few weeks of them and then getting called out to Depot didn't really attract me enough to finish up and get that piece of paper.

Skippy ( 5 ft 7 in High Browns) accused Dave Radu (6 ft 9, plus High Browns) of having lint on the top of his hat. When dave made the mistake of saying there was not any, Skippy took his swagger stick, hooked the cap and threw it the length of the drill hall floor. Dave had to run down and bring it back. Skippy put it on the end of the stick and showed Dave the dirt. Dave got 50 pushups for "bringing pets into MY drill hall!!!!!" Mind games.
