Canada reorganizes its armed forces into four distinct commands, with two soldiers in each one
*Okay, I brazenly stole that head from Fark.com. And you know I give props to the CDF.
Canada's military begins a major command structure shake-up Wednesday under the direction of chief of Defence Staff Rick Hillier.
Hillier said the new system will kick in Tuesday at midnight, and will divide the workload into four new commands.
They will include: * Canada Command will be responsible for all operations in North America; * Canadian Expeditionary Force Command will be responsible for international operations; * Canadian Special Operations Forces Command will be responsible for all special operations; * Canadian Operational Support Command will be responsible for providing support to the operations commands including logistics, engineering, health services, communications and military police support.
The new structure will enable each command to focus on specific threats and areas of responsibility, with skills and training specific to their area of expertise.
I like Hillier, he seems like a straight-up kind of guy. I hope this is a good move but I can't really judge, we'll see.
**Ooooh, does my theft qualify me for the Liberal leadership race?
