 Army Exercises Just Outside My City
 Reply with quote  

I always thought my hometown, Fredericton, New Brunswick, was just a crappy capital city in Canada. Our provinces major industries have been forestry and gas, pulp and paper. The multi-billion dollar family owned and run company "Irving" owns most of the province. Including the newspapers, radio stations television stations.

But there is much more about my city, which like I said is the capital. our university boasts some pretty cool achievements and current drives for technologies:

Here's some "facts" the university boasts:
Close to 75 per cent of university research in New Brunswick happens at UNB.

UNBs Planetary Space Science Centre is the only NASA-supported planetary imaging facility in Canada.
The UNB MRI Centre is one of the largest and best known material science magnetic resonance imaging labs in the world.

UNBs Canadian Rivers Institute working to make our rivers clean and safe.

UNBs Centre for Coastal Studies and Aquaculture does work in Canada, the Caribbean, the UK, the Mediterranean, South America, Australia and Antarctica.

UNBs Gregg Centre for the Study of War and Society is helping the world understand modern-day conflicts. It is one of the few research institutes in Canada and the U.S. studying the role of climate change in current and future conflicts.

Google Earth uses technology developed by UNB geodesy and geomatics engineering researchers.

UNBs Institute of Biomedical Engineering is a world-renowned research facility in biomedical engineering and one of the oldest solely dedicated to this field.

But UNB is not what I'm writing about. Just about a 1/2hr's drive from Fredericton is Canadian Forces Base Gagetown.
I used to work on the base when I left school. A lot of my best friends are army brats or in some way connected to the base.

So reading the news, this is happening at CFB Gagetown.



Over 1,000 Canadian Armed Forces personnel are in New Brunswick over the next two weeks to train in military exercises.

Common Ground II is being held at CFB Gagetown and includes training for nine different careers in the military.

Captain Ian McIntyre, public affairs officer for the combat training centre at CFB Gagetown, likens the exercise to a soldier's final exam.

"We have individual training, we have collective training. What it does is it brings together a number of individual and collective training sort of events under one exercise," said McIntyre.

The training combines classroom, computer simulation and combat-like instruction.

"It gives the students a really thorough first taste of how the different combat arms integrate, and who takes the lead in different situations. And it really helps promote them to the next stage in their careers."

CFB Gagetown 'home of the Canadian Army'

McIntyre said the base is a great place to hold the exercise.

The combat training centre has very technologically advanced equipment and as well, the sheer size of CFB Gagetown is ideal for large-scale training exercises.

"We are the home of the Canadian Army. If you are in the army, there's a pretty good chance you [are] going to do your training in Gagetown,"

While some of the soldiers are already stationed at CFB Gagetown, the majority of them have just arrived. The first thing the soldiers witnessed was a demonstration including tanks and aircraft.

Even though it's early days for the exercise, McIntyre is pleased so far with the response.

"It was an excellent demonstration and I think it's really poising them well for the training they're going to do over the next two weeks."

Common Ground II is scheduled to last until Nov. 26.


Maybe they are training to take over the US!

Mate......when I read "Planetary Space Science Centre" and "army exercises" together it became quite plain these are no "army exercises."

There's something else going on.

Quite possibly, something Not Of This Earth.

Stay frosty brutha.

Kinda hard not to "stay frosty" when the temperature around here is always hovering around 0 degrees Celsius laugh.gif
