The CMEA has embarked on a project aimed to ensure that every deceased member of the CME family is recognized in our Last Post website feature. In addition, we are striving to ensure each entry has at least one photo — preferably in uniform. So far, we have located nearly 200 of our brothers and sisters who had been missed, and added nearly 100 photos to the entries we already had.
Understandably, many of the photos we receive are of poor quality. Many are taken from low-resolution newspaper clippings. We have been able to enhance most of what we have found, but we need help in this endeavour. We are looking for anyone who has even a little bit of experience with Photoshop or similar software who can lend a hand. If you are that person, please contact the Webmaster at firstname.lastname@example.org for details as to how you can help.
The government recently announced a $25 million investment at CFB Kingston, and the nearby Kingston Armoury.
Most of the money will go to the building of a new Peace Support Training Centre which will provide advanced training for the Canadian Forces, other government departments assigned to conflict zones around the world, according to the Department of National Defence news release.
New Westminster Record
The Sappers' role in the Royal City's history will be emblazoned in neon for all to see — and it will be hard to miss.
The Brewery District has erected a neon neon public art sign along the wooden hoarding wall on the Brunette Avenue side of the site that faces the Fraser River. Inspired by one of the oldest graffiti tags — "Emily/Jack/Peter was here" — and the popular culture expression "Kilroy was here" from the Second World War, the 133-foot-long neon sign reads "The Sappers Were Here."
Burnaby News Leader
It's been a pretty eventful dozen years since Stuart Leamy joined the Canadian army straight out of high school.
He's served with the Canadian Scottish Regiment in the infantry on the front lines in Kandahar, Afghanistan.
He returned to Kabul in that country to advise officers and train new recruits in the Afghanistan national army.
He planned to be a full-time soldier.
But when he injured his shoulder and faced having to make a career change, now that was a stressful time.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper is to visit HMCS Fredericton.
The frigate is participating in the 17-country NATO war games in the Baltic Sea to test the region's readiness for potential military machinations by Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The news, which had been under embargo, was broken by Poland's newish prime minister, Ewa Kopacz, as she and Harper met at the Lazienki Palace in the Polish capital.
Motorists can now show their support for Canadian troops with military license plates.
The specialty plates were unveiled recently on Canadian Armed Forces Day.
Each plate displays the yellow "support our troops" ribbon on a camouflaged background.
The virtual reality lab at the Ottawa Hospital looks like the bridge of a spaceship or the world's biggest video game.
A treadmill sits on a platform in the middle of a darkened room in front of a huge wraparound video screen. Patients are tethered in a harness to the treadmill as they walk through a series of computer-generated virtual environments, all controlled by a technician at a nearby command station.
Armed With Science
The U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Research, Development and Engineering Center, or AMRDEC, now has advanced computational power capabilities in a package small enough to bring complex image and signal processing technology to small battlefield weapons. "We are leveraging advances in computer technology to push the Army's state of the art in a diverse range of military applications," said Steven Vanstone, AMRDEC Image and Signal Processing Function acting chief.Advances in computer technology are perhaps most evident in developments targeted for battlefield applications, Vanstone said.
When Geoffrey Ling talks about the future of technology, his ideas go flying around the room like a whirlwind. Ling eagerly describes a world in which people live far beyond their natural lifespans, minds can be downloaded into external "hard drives" for enhancement by artificial intelligence and robots and aircraft are controlled by human thought.
