First DO NOT mistake this as a rant against mobilisation. We joined to serve. BUT When we are not serving we train and prepare to serve, with 24 man days where is the choice, hence volunteer? 14 days ORT, 2days PWT, 2days nbcd, 4 days 2 big bang weekends, 2 days remembrance weekend, 4 days branch training, plus drill nights. I may not be cleaver but that is more than 24. Where is the choice and fun??? Slow old and dim.
