    Default MR on St. Valentine's Day

    Today marked my completion of National Service with the SAF, which my unit (556 SIR) will be placed in Mindef Reserve. It's been a long while of 13 years, after going through thick and thin with my fellow comrades. I would like to share with all in CS here.

    It's a day of remembrance and get-together with my comrades, with a video presentation followed by 10-year service award presentation in the morning, and a simple yet solemn parade in the MPH in the afternoon. The award is a nice Hamilton watch and a service medal kept in a very nice red box for everyone of us. Yes, we've earn it!

    When the baton was passed back to the brigade during the parade, a sudden flow of memories flushed my mind. There were happy and the not-so-happy moments for all of us in the battalion. There were the tough jungle trekking and smelly bodies during exercises. There were the drinking and 'talk c**k' sessions after the 'siong siong' tranings. No matter what, these have foster the relationship among all of us.

    After today, we'll part, but will definitely keep in contact with each other; but we can all now proudly say we have done our part in keeping this country safe and sound during these years. We can also say good-byes to in-camp trainings, IPPTs, RTs, and can also safely dispose our equipment. A feeling of happiness and lost all in a day.

    Anyone here may like to share their MRs here, for the benefit of those who are still working towards this day.
    Kind Regards

    It is true that once under MR, there will be no more IPPT, RT ?
    Can anyone confirm this ?

    details are here.

    Question 5 asks,

    "If I am posted to MINDEF Reserve, am I still liable for IPPT?"

    NSmen who have been posted to MINDEF Reserve will receive a letter from the respective unit. Once posted to MR list, your status as ?active NS? will cease and you are not required to take IPPT.

    Thanks man! I'll dump helmets, webbings, full pack items and keep 1 set of boots and uniform, just in case MR recalls me back. Then it'll be REAL war!

    Yes, confirmed by my CO yesterday, but need to wait for the official letter from Mindef saying that you're officially posted to MR. My official date is 1 April 06. So those who was born before this date still need to take IPPT! I was born after this date.

    Thanks SB. Everyone needs to earn it, and on that day, one can then proudly say they've done it!

    I've got a 3rd sergeant who has done only 5 HKs, but don't know for whatever reasons, has gone MR with us. So wherever he went, kenna 'suan' by us. This shows that if you have not earn it, really no point in going MR, cos the pride is not there.

    Thanks for the link bro. Although this doesn't matter to me anymore, it will serve as very informative to those who are still in reservist training.

    This is the real R.O.D.
