    Hey, my congratulations to you too KT!

    Usually, the MR parade will be earlier than your actual MR date, which is the same as mine (1 Apr). Your unit will hold the parade and they'll recall you back for that 'auspicious' day.

    Do keep this thread alive and share with us your feelings on that MR parade day. Different unit have different style of celebration. I've got a friend whose unit hold their MR parade in a country club!

    All combat equipment like helmet, webbing, full pack, etc. When we're recalled back, they'll re-equip us again.

    Photographic equipment, you can dispose them and I can collect from you.

    MINDEF Reserve is a pool of reserve soldiers that will be recalled when there's a war. As in the exact number, I think it's about 300,000 strong. So don't play play with Singapore!

    I'm not from Singapore, I don't understand these things.
    MR = Mindef Reserve?, what is this? they call you when there is war?

    The men operating it is more lethal than the equipment itself. So don't play play with MINDEF Reserve!

    What do you need, please let me know. When I receive the offical letter from MINDEF (around 1 Apr), I'll post on this thread and you can decide what you want.

    Time pass very fast, so just don't think about it. Just do it and when the day comes, it'll be a good remembrance for the rest of your life. You can then tell your friends, siblings, parents, sons and daughters that you've done it!

    You just go and count. If you've done 7 HK and 3 LK, it's then about time.

    All units will MR, and that includes SCE. Infantry, Guards and Commandos MR earlier though.

    Hmm... Well, u'd said it 'for whatever reasons' prolly unknown to u. But unknown to the fact, his contribution to the nation might be greater den anyone in ur unit, including ur CO.

    Whilst u guys earned it after all ur siong-ness, sometimes its best not to judge anyone by their appearance or the number of HKs they'd served with the unit but by the contribution they made to the nation.

    My 2 cents worth of thought. No pun intended, peace! And of cos, congrats on ur new posting to the quarter million strong reserve soldiers.

    Erm...I beg to differ. We've all serve together as a team and we know what he has contributed or not contributed. I can't say how to compare him with our CO, but I can say what he has done is not as siong as any one of us in the team.

    We just felt that it's unfair to those guys who has also served 5 HKs and has not gone MR but being posted to other units.

    Anyway, it's just a small incident. The most important is that majority of us has MRed!

    Ey...I thought the cash is credited into your account, not the smartcard?

    Anyway, no need to empty. The account is still active, just that MINDEF won't credit any more cash into your account after you MR.

    Thanks bro. The 'official' age is until 40 for WOs, Specialists and enlisted personnel, and 50 for officers.

    Depending on your unit, if you can finish your 7 HKs and 3 LKs well before that age, MINDEF will MR you once you've reached that stage. My unit quite fast lah...can 1 physical year do 2 in-camps. So finish well before 40 loh...
