Just because someone isn't on Facebook, doesn't mean they're not real!

The Basic Up folks are real.
Sure, apes read Nietzsche.  They just don't understand it.

You could ask someone you know who is in the forces to look them up on dwan to see if a name comes up but I'm not sure I could even tell you if I did see them on the system.

I've found them on DWAN, but that's as far as I think is appropriate to go.

We are staddling the lines of a PERSEC violation here guys... if you want to get in contact with someone off the show, do it through a Public Affairs Officer, otherwise bugger off.

I know of the guy in season one who VR'd on like day 3. He worked at a call center for Rogers Wireless. Told my GF he used to be in the military. Didn't realize it was him until years later after watching basic up lol.

Not sure where he is now, but I saw Pvt White from S1 at the St-Jean Garrison in the medical buildings back in either late 2014 or early 2015. Of course, he wasn't still a Pvt xD Very similar feeling to being starstruck xD

Does anyone here think it would be a good idea to watch series like Basic Up or Truth Duty Valour before you actually head off the BMQ? I have a feeling that it would cause some shock if someone were to watch the shows and be like, "Well this doesn't look too hard!" versus their thoughts when they're actually there.

Anyone know if either of the Basic Up series exist elsewhere on the net? It seems the ones uploaded to YouTube have been set to private or deleted for the most part.
