Congratulations. You’ve been summoned to return forthwith to serve your country as a member of the reservist. There is no higher honour than to hone your body and wits during your reservist training.

Here’s what you’ve won: depending on where your unit is, if you’re sequestered on campgrounds, you get to stay in a room with other reservists. If you’re lucky, you’ll get to see a familiar face or get to engage in a heated discussion with another fellow reservist personal about the finer points of whether Amos Yee had it coming to him or not. Sometimes, the unit you’re at might be haunted! What fun!

A roof over your head, three square meals a day, stirring conversations with people and a possibility of your bunk beds being shaken by unseen malevolent spirits.

Reservist occurs at your respective units, please call 1800-3676767 for more details.
