    When you go for ICT, I believe you have to attend the key activities, ie: live-firing, field camps, exercise etc etc. If you miss the key activities, even if you go for say half of the ICT, it still wun count.

    Soooo... if I haven't served any keys, high or low or don or mon, then essentially I stop becoming liable only upon reaching the age of 40?

    Technically speaking, yes. But technically speaking, you think MINDEF will forget about you?

    My advice is, you better pray they recall you as early as possible. Don't wait until you lau kok kok liao then they call you for reservists, especially if you're those belonging to 'chiong swa' units.

    I remembered that there are a few 'old men' in our unit during my reservists days. We all just came out from active, still strong can go 10k road march without any issues. Pity those old men who can't even walk 2k with full gear on, let alone go mission and 'chiong swa'.

    He must have been a Commando.
    They have shorter Reservist cycles.

    nope. not a commando.

    the system works in this way (i was told)..SAF has a budget for NSmen's pay. with that limited budget, they'll try to get as many people back as they can, hence those with lower incomes may suffer as they might be recalled more often till they complete their ICT cycles.

    my senior was unfortunately not employed hence he always tio recalled for ICT..
