    No changes to PES A/B.

    Obese increase by 3 more weeks and PTP increase by 4 more weeks.

    More, PES E used to be 5-day residential.. Now 4 weeks.

    Seriously, I don't get the idea of why they should extend PES E recruits' BMT duration.

    my best memories were in my bmt ptp training, compared to being in ocs(ooc), then thereafter being in unit. at least in bmt you are more 'pure' haha. If they don't extend the liability length, 4 months ptp is actually a good thing in my opinion

    Actaully the most sian period of my National Service is during BMT. It was fun a sense when you are doing the training but... 6pm Sunday evening report to Pasir Ris.... SIAN! And the ferry ride makes it even more sian. Not to mention my camp was Rocky Hill, FAR FAR away from the ferry terminal. No sight of mainland. Even though I had mainland camps far far away from my house. Literally east to west but at least you can see cars, civilisation... and I was in PTP batch.

    So another 4 more weeks for PTP? SIAN. Going to ORD in 5 days!

    I think 4 weeks PES E is to teach them the proper forms, admin procedures, how to feel up forms, etc etc...

    SO we expect a Commando Clerk now.
