Just came by to say Happy Canadian Armed Forces day. It's impressive to see the dedicated service of the CAF over the years, and it's increasing involvement in peace keeping and aid to civil power in times like this. Thank you for your service.

This was enlightening (and quite nostalgic) hearing about the CA's efforts in training, force projection and force protection at this time. Good start, the podcast can only get better from here! P. S Pardon my ignorance, why do you say Stay Frosty?
