What might be done to clear the decrepit out of LAV-filling billets on a routine basis? Stronger remuster opportunities? More vigorous ongoing training within the battalions? Revision of how MEL'd members are handled?FWIW, as I recall, this is impossible in most cases as the vacancies are very few and far between.
Unless there's a war on and you really, really need some fit, keen, teenage cannon fodder to fill up the LAVs etc because half the (aging, decrepit) Regular Army is non-deployable due to various ailments (real or imagined) of course
Seems like, if mismanaged, a good way to have even more knackered backs and knees in rifle green.Not my intent at all - the point was the 031 is physically hard - and churn should be encouraged to other trades.
It gives everyone a base understand of ground combat at the rudimentary level - which can be used later, when when Cpl Bloggins is on a supply run and the convoy is ambushed - he at least has a background to know fire and maneuver.
You will see more and more Asymetrical battlefields with the dispersed Multi-domain operation concepts current being conducted by the Allies.
It also ensures that everyone starts off on a level playing field.
Worth chinning off CAF BMQ and returning to service (or maybe branch?) initial training? Ditto the other common career courses.
