    I never been on a blog before, but I,m trying to find out about a 6 week Canadian military course I was in in the early 60s during the height of the cold war in Windsor Ont. They called it a survival course, payed us 40 bucks a week and I had a hell of a good time in it, also they told us if war breaks out ur in for good, after the course they told us if u want u can sign up for good which I almost did, I just wana know if I can get any info. on what I was in, because I have some real fond memories of that unit, like, takin FNC ones apart, jumping out of buildings, traffic and refugee control and of course marching and saluting, and all kindsa macho stuff, If someone out there can steer me in the right direction I’d sure appreciate it,

      Hi Klaus,

      I have never heard of this program. You should try contacting the City of Windsor to see if they have any information in their archives.

        Thanx for the reply good idea, Its realy not important but what the hell with all this computer equipment siting here might as well use it, I read what u wrote about what people did for the cold war, and that they should be recognized, I think ur right, how soon we forget, I remember the Surface to air missiles going up every Sunday for maintenance over around Detroit, and how scared were during the Cuban missile crisis,
