    Every now and then? More like every 2 months for me man. Attend this seminar, attend that talk, attend this discussion, attend ICT, VOLUNTEERING me for Bde exercise, etc etc. Got to love it.

    and will be posted to MR
    which is a nice way to say you are no longer liable for NS but ....
    BUT... if ever anything goes down, they can STILL call you back. 'Cause you're part of the "reserves".

    Ah, thanks for the info. Not that it'll do them much good for them to call me back.

    You can buy SAF items at SAF emart on-line . When they delivery the goods to your home, you pay them $5 cash for delivery charge.

    But indeed....

    2 letters of commendation, 1 medal, 1 promotion, 1 award and no sign of MR.. sigh...

    But actually NS is good way to keep in touch with good people, keep fit, go hiking with free food, uniforms and fly overseas for free...

    I don't dislike the in camps, just the long planning sessions, and the no showering outfield.

    From Temesek Green to the current set I have at least 20 plus sets of uniform and I look forward to the new SBO and back pack, esp if I can wrangle one out of the QM or something...

    The hard ship we endure is character building, and we get plenty of stories to tell and bond with... any guys sitting together will have stories to tell.

    Cheers

    What to do, officer mah. I know how you feel. Sometimes these planning sessions just take way too long.

    at least credits can change for something.. later they just pay you with a cert of thanks.
