    Doing my reservist now. Many things have changed in the army but some things never change, rush to wait, wait to rush.

    The army is still not good at time management. I still do not understand why we must in process or book in by 0730 hrs. It should be changed to 0830 hrs.

    Book out today on Saturday, no five day week for reservist ?

    If you want 5 day week, they will have to recall you for longer periods. You want?

    Army day starts at 8am. Thats why so early.

    Can. In case of war, please tell the enemy forces to have a good weekend's rest, and resume fighting.

    who says the NSF's in the respective reservist units are exempted in *administering* the reservist inpro/training/outpro?

    open your eyes; you'd be a better photographer for being able to notice things going on around you.

    Please settle that issue with your unit's COMD, CO, or S3.

    I was referring to the MOB that was mentioned at the beginning of the thread.

    guys, since we're on the topic of NS, nowadays when mindef impose each and every NSmen to logon & check the M I W website for their ICT schedules, does it imply that there'll be no more 100As to be dispatched by mail?

    by doing this, they are indirectly telling NSmen that ignorance is no excuse for not turning up for ICT, since they assume that each and every NSmen shd make it a point to check regularly.

    also, if true, how to do makeup pay claim from employer?

    From what I understand during my last ICT ... they will soon be using e-SAF100 ... They will send you sms and e-mails ... asking you to go to M I W to check and acknowledge ... They will keep doing this until the system recieve an acknowledgement from you ... Otherwise when it hits the cut-off time, they will activate the runner system and go knock on your door ...

    Pay claims can be filed thru the M I W website also .... The bottom line is to keep you M I W info current .... That how the SAF going to contact you in the future .....

    If i remember correctly, got big sign informing you tt cameras are NOT allowed in camps.

    Anyway, out in field, handphone (w/o camera) is a lifesaver. Depended on it during field trainings locally and overseas. Phone bills run into the hundreds!

    Cannot leh. Out in the field, you dump your best friend/camera for a rifle/wife and have an affair with a HP.
