    They something like US marines do but they call them guards to sound less offensive. I can't devuldge exactly what they do or how they operate on an online forum. It's best to check it out with the recruitment centre.

    by "relaxed duty", many refer to clerk, storeman, etc. don't be misled though. clerks do lots of paperwork, storemen do lots of inventory checking, etc.

    i know my friend who was a clerk in at CMPB, and many a time work cuts into his lunch hour.

    the term "relax duty" refer to non physical duty eg those you mention. But of course non physical duty will be replace by mental stress. depend on where you landed to ... CMPB not all department is stress.

    "Guards" are not called Guards to be less offensive. Guards are actually part of the elite in some countries including SG. You do noticed that our Guardsmen wear khaki berets to denote this status.

    When I went for NS checkup they just gave me PES B, high myopia. Hopefully when they send me the letter it will become a C

    WOW, qwerty628 we need more dudes like u

    I heard the reason why u cannot do a Lasik too near pre enlistment is because because post surgery u end up with a temp downgrade for a few mths. U better check with them if u r planning to do the surgery.

    And yes u need really severe myopia before u can get downgraded.

    Guards will gladly take u Ready to Strike!

    sure ask him sign on... Guards is, from what I heard from ppl around me, overtrained infantry, underpaid CDO. but actually it depends on personal preferrences. u like Guards, SIGN ON!!
